“Whatever Happened to Baby Jayne” Knit Hat

My friend Au’na originally commissioned a Jayne Cobb hat for her little boy before he was born. I ended unwrapping it up just in time for GenCon

Props again to Knitting Ninja for their awesome pattern and their recommendations for Pom Pom tutorials. Because I was using slightly smaller needles and I was adjusting the pattern or a young baby, I cast on 56 stitches.

Creating the apparatus for the Pom Pom ended up being easier this time around — once I realized the base of my coffee cup was 3″ and a US quarter is 1″. Crafting is always awesome when you realize how versatile everyday items are.

Baby Jayne has been a big hit this weekend! What do you guys think?
