Yarn - Cotton Ease from the stash.
Needles – Addi Turbo sz 8 (two of ‘em)
Pattern – Made it up as I went.
It goes something like.....cast on enough stitches to go around the baby's head, which will be far biger than you think is possible. An inch of ribbing, change colors (or not), a few inches of stockinette, then some decreases. The tassel is just a braid, nothing fancy. Knit it in the round and there's even no seaming. Wash, dry, mail, wait impatiently to hear back that they love it.
