There's been a small baby boom in our extended circle recently, resulting in a scramble for something fun to knit. Went over the moon for the Garter Ear Flap Hat published in the Purl Bee and immediately cast on. They did it up in these tasteful alpaca neutrals, which is lovely and baby friendly but not so much for mom. How many times is that frantic mamacita going to handwash that exotic fiber hat?
Also, given that subtlty and nuance aren't a strong suit at Nake-id Knits, we're of the opinion that bold colors and big tassels are, if not more tasteful, more amusing on les infants.
The yarns are Lily Sugar 'N Cream in black and Classic Elite Pebbles in Schapp pink (only they didin't call it that; shoot me, I threw away the ballband).
Anyway, the Garter Ear Flap pattern is a dream and whips up in a trice. Plan to make many more.
