Wandering Clouds Baby Knit Hat

Wandering Clouds Baby Knit Hat

If you don't just love the hazy coloring of this Wandering Clouds Baby Knit Hat, like clouds lazily floating over the sky on a summer day, then you're just wrong. Every baby would look adorable in a hat like this one. Though it looks exciting and cute in orange, we especially would love this baby hat in blue or purple. It's basic enough to work for either a boy or a girl, so don't worry about getting started knitting before the baby's even made an appearance!
