Sweet Pea Hat

And the Surprise Baby Prezzie has FINALLY been delivered to its intended baby recipient - Miss Piper. Isn't she lovely? Now I can show you some photos!

As Piper's initials are P.E.A., it seemed only fitting to knit her the Sweet Pea Hat. It turned out a little large (two inches is a lot on a baby), so it's rolled up in this photo. What this means, is that you can't see the darling brim - knit in the contrasting sage green you see at the top of the hat.

I loved this pattern, and adore this hat. The vines, peas, and pea pod were so fun to knit. (I actually knit the hat top-down following Susan Pierce Lawrence's directions. I love avoiding swatching at all times.)

I can't wait to knit more of Susan B. Anderson's designs, like this beautiful cupcake hat that Alison at the Blue Blog knit for her one-year-old!
