The Sweetie Pie Hat pattern is printed on the label of Be Sweet’s beautiful Bambino Taffy yarn. It has a picot hem, an eyelet heart motif, bobbles, and a fun tie top. All of these embellishments make this little hat – it’s one size will fit babies 6 to 18 months of age – a fun and interesting project.
If it seems too much for baby boys, you can replace the picot hem with ribbing and omit the eyelets for the heart. I’d keep the bobbles and the tie top; I think it’s cute.
It was Bambino Taffy’s colors that first got my attention. Each ball is made up of 5 coordinating colors that are tied together (like Be Sweet’s Magic Ball yarn). I love the shades they chose. Once I felt it, I was really drawn in. Bambino Taffy is a blend of organically-grown cotton and bamboo. It’s wonderfully soft and perfect for babies’ little heads.
You only need 1 ball to knit the Sweetie Pie Hat – and what a great gift!
