A wee one

So, my neighbors, who now know what happend that night this past summer, are about to have their first baby (isn't everyone?). Art and Lauren are fabulous, and we like them a ton, so I decided to knit them a quick baby hat last night.

Basic 2x2 rib baby hat in Bernat Softee Chunky. I added two little antennae just for kicks!

tooo cute! can you please send me the pattern? i can't figure out how to make zigzaggy knits like that!!

Tex: it's all in the yarn. The yarn is an ombre, or it has a pattern dyed into it. But if you want to make any hat in the round, cast on an even number of stitches, knit in k2 p2 rib until hat is the desired length, do one round of ktog p2, one round of ktog p1, two rounds of k1p1 rib and two rounds of ktog all sts.

Aw! Too cute! I'm trying to make myself a hat for the first time and I think I should have started in miniature. I have a circular knitting question, if you have a second I might e-mail you if that's okay!

Thanks!

It'll be easier to pull the hat off with the two antennae :)
