Since the pattern is written for a newborn I had to make a couple of modifications to make it a little larger. I added an extra row of increases and two extra rows to the length. I actually could have only added one extra row because it was a little long in the back. What’s great about this pattern is that it is cinched in the front so it still fit.
I also used DK weight yarn so I used an H hook to make the stitches a little bigger to accommodate for the thinner yarn.
I love love love this pattern! I really want to make one for myself next. It would be really easy to make the hat larger for an adult sized head.
Having a baby mini photo shoot in the evening when it’s getting dark is pretty challenging. Especially when it’s a bouncy nine month old 🙂
