FO - Baby Jester Hats

I've finally finished, washed, blocked, wrapped up and given the hats I promised my friend back in the Summer. I've no real excuse for why it took me so long, just a lot of procrastination I think

Both hats are knitted with Stylecraft Special aran in the Royal and Teal colourways. As you can see I added a few bells to the top of the one for the 4 year old. Wasn't planning on adding bells as I didn't remember that I had some, but when I was sewing buttons on for my other FO (photos coming later this week hopefully!) I found some in my button box and thought they'd make a nice surprise. For obvious reasons I didn't add any to the baby's hat

The pattern is Baby Jester Hat by Woolly Wormhead which is free on ravelry. There is also an adult version which is also free. I made the 14" and 18" sizes but as I was knitting with slightly thicker yarn they've come out bigger. The blue hat will just fit my head but when I tried it on my 4 year old it fitted her much better which is perfect. Very simple pattern to knit (providing you follow the instructions..ahem!)


Like a lot of the UK we had a bit of snow this weekend. I know it's not really that impressive to some of you but it's pretty exciting for us lol. Pippin the puppy and our chickens hadn't encountered snow before so were a bit suspicious at first...

  4. Such beautiful baby hats! And the bells added look so cute.
    Did Pippin like the snow? I believe many dogs love it, but I'm no expert.
    Have a lovely (and healthy) new week!

    1. Thank you :) I think he was fairly unbothered by it once he'd investigated. Maybe next time he'll be more keen to play with it
