Acorn Hat

 I finished my sweater today, the Derry Raglan sweater from the New England Knits book…blocking right now so I thought I would post a new hat.  If I get enough interest, I will write the hat in other sizes…just drop me a note! Enjoy!!

    Have you written patterns for newborn or baby for this hat yet? I would love this hat to go along with a baby sweater I knit that has an oak leaf on it!
