Mondays Good Idea: Stash-busting baby hats

I’ve recently gained a new niece and nephew, they’re now 3 months old but still very small. I wanted to make them a knitted gift each for Christmas but I have rather a lot of deadlines coming up, so it had to be something small and quick.

I decided on little hats, the pattern I’ll be sharing on Friday, but I realised when researching baby hats that they are great stash-busters, they use such a small amount of yarn that they are perfect for using up those little leftovers that every knitter/crocheter has.

So here are a couple of other baby hats that I fell in love with when searching for patterns, and if you don’t have a baby to knit for your local hospital would probably love them. (click on the photos to get to the patterns)
