Once you have a baby you also need many things you never thought about before. This is one example. There are no good baby hats out there. Most of them do not cover the ears and do not tie on, so they end up in the first puddle you and baby step over. These hats are very warm, secure and require only wad and wash care. My son is modeling a hat and sweater combo I made for a friend. I have also made this hat for other people in curly black, cranberry fleece, purple knit, a multi-colored knit that is mostly gray but has a little of every color in the rainbow and can only be described as dryer lint.
