The pattern is written for a newborn size, but directions for adapting it to other sizes are included.
This first one was knitted with Plymouth Baby Bunny yarn (a discontinued yarn, alas). I still have quite a lot of this stuff, leftover from the Log Cabin blanket I crocheted about 4 years ago.
I blogged about the blanket, which I crocheted using a free pattern; you will find the link to the pattern and lots more pics here.
After I typed up the Easter Egg Hat pattern, I experimented with Tahki Cotton Classic to make another. I ended up using a #3 needle, even though I usually use a #4 with this stuff. Let's face it, I am a loosey-goosey knitter.
Tahki Cotton Classic is one of my favorite yarns for baby hats. Lots of colors to choose from, no worries about allergies to woolly fibers, machine washable--what's not to like?

So cheerful! I especially love the starburst on the top.
