“You Are My Sunshine”

Infant’s Hat Pattern

© Amanda Bryant 2016

Unable to purchase any new yarn for the time being, I’ve been using up what’s in my “left-overs” stash.  The yarn I used in this hat is Red Heart Soft Touch in the color Lemon. Unfortunately, the camera on my phone doesn’t do the color any justice. It is actually much brighter than what you see in the photo. You can check out the Red Heart website for a better image of what the color looks like (click here to go to the page). The pattern below includes instructions for size 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. (The 6- 12 month size fits my 13 month old daughter nicely.) I really love how this little hat turned out. The edging on the brim reminds me of little pointy rays of sunshine 🙂 Anyhow, I really hope you like this pattern. Any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
