This time I have a baby hat to review so I can't answer the question, "Does it fit?".
This pattern is from the May 1974, Workbasket Magazine
This pattern says it's for a "six-month-old size" with changes for a one-year-old. I made the smaller version. I'm sure if fits a six-month old child somewhere out in the world.
Materials required are an ounce of baby yarn, a size C hook, some ribbon and a button. Baby yarn is a little vague. I have yarn that calls itself baby yarn in fingering weight, sport weight and DK. Fortunately, this pattern gives a gauge in both rows and stitches. I tried some DK weight first and that was way over the gauge so I dropped down to this Panda Cotton I've had in my stash forever. I believe that this is closer to a fingering weight and the gauge came out perfectly.
This is a very simple pattern. I ran out of the first color of Panda Cotton but had more in a different color to finish it off. I couldn't find any ribbon that was the right size in my jar of ribbons so I made the ties in crochet instead.
I'm going to give this pattern 4.5 stars out of 5. I'm only marking it down for the use of baby yarn instead of being a little more specific about the actual yarn weight.
Next week: The Granny Square Hat!
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
