If you ever need a quick, inex-
pensive baby shower gift this is a great pattern. Or maybe you want to give something handmade but don't want to spend forever or just want to augment to a store-bought gift.
This is the Children's Cotton Hat from "Last-Minute Knitted Gifts". I check this out of the library every once in awhile.
It's the second time I've made it and this time I actually used the Mission Falls 1824 Cotton called for in the pattern. This 100% cotton yarn has a nubby texture and wasn't too awful to knit with - especially for so short a period. It is labeled as machine wash and dry / gentle cycle.
One ball was $5.75 at my nearly LYS and I used less than a full skein.
