Happy Birthday Braeden!

My adorable nephew Braeden celebrated his first birthday last month.  And we all know it’s just not a party without a party hat.  This little jester hat is a variation of a pattern from the ‘Baby Beanies’ book. However, Braeden lives in Florida where a wool hat doesn’t make much sense. So, this hat was knit with Lily Sugar and Cream cotton.

One look at those big blue eyes and you can see why I chose this color palette.  I also like that the navy blue and the stripes make it a little preppy.  At less than a skein each this was an inexpensive hat to knit,  but it’s cute enough that Braeden can go ahead and let all of his friends think he paid $30 for it at Baby Gap.

We should all have such handsome men in our lives to knit for.  Here’s to another great year, Braeden.
