Baby Knit Hat

We went to Minneapolis area this weekend to visit Kyle's family. The temperatures were forecasted in the 40s/50s so I knitted Wade a cute baby knit hat complete with Pom Pom on top. It took a couple trials to finally figure out the pattern I liked that would fit my baby's head, but I think I finally got one figured out and as Wade grows I can adjust my cast on length to adjust for his head diameter. I used a thick gauge yarn from Walmart and bigger needles. Of course if you have small needles and small gauge yarn-this pattern is not for you. 

Cast on 28

Start stockinette stitch (K one row, P one row)
