Babies need sun hats, so I designed this simple cap to protect the little ones from the strong summer rays.
P, the cutest sheep in the world, is modeling my new Here Comes the Sun Baby Cap. This is a very fast and easy cap to make.
The pattern is below:
Here Comes the Sun – Baby Cap
You can make this cap with the yarn of your choice and a G Hook.
As a sun cap, I think that this hat lends itself to cotton yarns, but you can use other sport or baby weight yarns for cooler weather caps.
This yellow cap was made with Peaches and Cream Cotton.
