Baby Cabled Hat Pattern
I specifically designed this Newborn Baby Cabled Hat Pattern to go with Hipster Toddler Girl Cabled Slouchy Hat Pattern (also for sale in my Etsy store) as a little sister/big sister combo. The patterns are similar, but I was careful to not make them too matchy-matchy. But this hat is definitely also a cutie on it’s own!
Adding Cat (or just general critter) Ears to a Knit Hat

DIY Easy Gender Reveal: It’s a…
I had my “gender revealing” ultrasound at 20 weeks. We are of the folk that find out the baby’s sex. Waiting that long to know is plenty long and surprise enough for us.
