Perfect Unisex Baby Hat

Here is a lovely little knitted baby hat - just perfect for a boy or a girl.
 
There seems to be loads of pretty pattern designs for girls ~ but it's hard to find good pattern designs for boys.
 
This one is adorable.

  5. Completed in four days! My friend will love it for her son (I did it in a royal blue). Some mistakes were made (by me) but it was an easy to follow pattern.

    I absolutely love your knitting patterns! :)
