Flower in an Hour ~ New Baby Hat Pattern!


Hi, Knitters,
I have a sweet new baby hat to share with you today. A couple of years ago I whipped up the pink tonal hat with a flower for TC's band teacher who was having a baby girl at any moment. She just loved the hat so much. I scratched down the notes for how to make the hat in my sketchbook but never got around to writing it out to share with all of you. Today is finally the day.

To celebrate this long awaited (on my part) release of Flower in an Hour I am having a Happy July sale! The hat pattern is regularly priced at $5.00 and I am offering a $1.00 off discount code from today, July 1st through the end of the day on July 15th, 2014.

The discount code is: FLOWER


Enjoy the sale!

Flower in an Hour is a super quick, fun and relatively simple baby hat with a very easy lace pattern for just a few rounds, and an adorable flower for added cuteness. This is the perfect project for super fast baby gift knitting and it will make you the hit of any baby shower!
The pattern is written for 3 sizes (0 months to 2 years ~ the largest size will most likely fit older children) and it is written out for two weights of yarn, both Bulky and Aran weight with two different gauges.
Bulky gauge is 3.5 sts per inch.
Aran gauge is 4.5 sts per inch.
This gives you lots of options for speedy baby gift knitting. In the photos the dark pink hat is the Lorna’s Laces Bulky weight yarn and the speckled hat is the Duck Duck Wool Aran yarn.
Flower in an Hour is titled so because of the small size of the project, the heavier weight yarns and bigger needles, plus the simplicity of the design all make this an incredibly quick knit. And, of course, it is a cute rhyming name for a baby hat.
That said, it may take you a bit longer than an hour to make but hopefully not too much longer!


The pink tonal yarn is the soft, squishy super wash wool bulky weight called Lorna's Laces Shepherd Bulky in the Lincoln Park Zoo colorway! One skein is all you need.



The speckled white hat is the super soft gorgeous Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend by Duck Duck Wool in the Art Smock colorway. This is the aran weight version of the hat!


Hey, there are pre-orders available right now for Art Smock Aran! One skein is all you need.


The hat is such a quick, fun knit that you will be done in a flash and you will have the BEST baby gift in your hands and all handmade with love.


Even the top of the hat is sweet-looking in the Duck Duck Wool Aran yarn.

One skein of either of these yarn options will work fine. They are both generous in yardage.

Enjoy the new baby hat pattern! 


Don't forget to use the coupon code FLOWER at checkout for $1.00 off the regular price through July 15th!

Love to you all. Thanks for all of the kind wishes and thoughts for my son and our anniversary, and for sharing your own milestones with me. That's what it's all about around here, community.
best, susie

Super duper cute! You must let Lorna's Laces know if you haven't already about using their yarn in your design.

Adorable! I think I will make two, one for a friend's new (coming soon) baby girl and one for the soon-to-be big sister. I have to ask though -- is the flower crochet?

Hope that helps.
