My pattern for Greenleaf Baby Hat has been published in 101 One-Skein Wonders for Babies, and it was such a thrill to see the book on the shelf at my local Barnes & Noble, knowing that my work is in it!
The book has so many cute patterns for baby things--everything from booties and bibs to blankets. And of course, many cute hats, But may I say that I am pretty proud of my little hat. :-)
I still remember the moment the design for this hat came to me: I had the basic roll-brim hat mostly done, and I was driving home from the Farmer's Market on Carson Street, talking to my daughter about how I was going to end it off, and the idea for a little leaf just popped into my head! I went home and finished it off, and I loved how it turned out. And I guess other people like it too, because over 900 finished ones have been posted on Ravelry!
Now it lives on in book form, and I hope many more knitters enjoy making it and many more babies enjoy wearing it!
