I'm trying to keep Leo supplied with cosy hats, a task that is a great pleasure. He needed one that could be fastened under his chin so that it would stay in place. He has a habit of pulling them off! I had fun going through patterns and chose one from my favourite hat book, Baby Beanies by Amanda Keeys. I made the size I thought would fit, but it turned out bigger than I had planned:
(I always like the look of the top of a knitted hat.)
I decided to make another one a little smaller:
But when we tried the small hat on Leo, it was too small!
The large one fit quite well.
We tied it under his chin and for a while...
...he actually forgot he was wearing it!
But eventually, he realized!
Hopefully, when he's out in the cold, our little Leo will keep
his cosy-warm hat on his sweet little head.
Stay warm and well,
