Strawberry Baby Hat

Pattern: Anna Norling #10 - Fruit Cup

Yarn: Worsted Weight

I knitted the hat with a slightly darker red as I wanted it to look like a ripe strawberry. It's a very quick and fun knit.
This hat is really much smaller than it appears. It's a size 12 mos. but it will probably fit her now at age two months. The hat was inspired by the following picture:

This is Kaileigh Noella, age two months, sitting peacefully in a strawberry patch while her mom, Jodi, is berry picking. Isn't she just ever darling!!

I've been working on some other knitting projects that I will blog about in the next couple of days.

So from very rainy Vermont.......

Happy Knitting!


  1. Oh, cute! She's absolutely adorable, and the hat is perfect for her. I can just see her looking at that picture and holding that hat when she's a teenager, going, wow, was I really ever that small?

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment on my blog! I love the Ocean Wave socks you made and the hat is sooo cute! As is the baby :)

  3. What a beautiful baby! She will look adorable in that hat.

  4. Gosh that cute hate will make that cute baby even more so!

  5. What a sweetie! She will look so precious in the lovely hat you've made. Great job!

  6. Very cure hat!! I would love to see a picture of that little cutie wearing that cute hat. :)

    I googled this to try to find the pattern for a strawberry hat for my hairstylist's first baby. Can I get this pattern free somewhere? Cheers!
