Aviatrix





One of my favorite things I have knit for the baby is this sweet little aviator style hat. 
This is from the free pattern, Aviatrix, and it's knit using Blue Sky Alpacas Sport.

It's hard to capture the hat's unbelievable cuteness with it just laying flat like this... It seriously needs to be modeled for the full effect. Unfortunately, there were no teddy bears around with the appropriate head size, so we'll just have to wait until baby arrives to get the perfect shot.

I know this hat will be warm and cozy and I love how it buttons around the chin. If I had more time, I would love to make this in every size and in many different yarn and button combinations. 

Did you know that this pattern actually comes in 7 different sizes with options for 3 different yarn weights?!? Amazing, right?

And Yes, you seriously need to have it modeled by the new baby!

What a gorgeous hat, I've just cast on for this! Looking forward to seeing it on your new arrival (when it does decide to make an appearance)!

It couldn't be cuter...except on your baby's head.

I made this one for my nephew. It is so easy, and incredibly cute! It seems to look adorable no matter the yarn, but the buttons used are very important!

The Aviatrix has been in my Ravelry Queue for ages now. Your version is just adorable. Now I am inspired to knit my own. Thank you!

Aviatrix was on my list of patterns that I never knit for my first child and so MUST knit for my second (and last!) before she outgrows them all. I finished it last week but, being 2, she now has strong opinions about what she will and will not wear and, sadly, Aviatrix is apparently not on her approved list. Can't wait to see yours modeled!
