I was given a pattern for a baby beanie which I wanted to knit for baby #2 to wear at the hospital. The trouble was that I didn't know what size to start with out of the 6 options, so I thought I'd start small and go from there. The blue means nothing, just that I had a lot of blue wool. Second go (the cream one) is a much better size. Both are very cute though.
The blue hat is the smallest size on the pattern. The green hat next to it is the one my daughter wore home from the hospital.
This is the second try. It is the same size as the green hat above.
