Long-tailed Baby Hat

I'm going to be a first-time auntie in just three more months! I'm so excited, and enjoying getting to make things for a baby.

My sister saw some newborn pictures with babies wearing knitted hats with long tails and loved the idea. She asked if I could make something similar to the one she saw. I looked around for patterns and finally found one I could adapt. I used her nursery colors of gray and yellow, with white and brown accents.

I'm very pleased with the finished product.
I have never written a knitting pattern before, but I will try to write out the pattern soon. It will probably happen in a few weeks when school is out.  Until then, here is the picture.

It looks cute here, but I can't wait to see how cute it will look on their new little bundle of sunshine!

UPDATE: Here he is, in all his sweet cuddly cuteness!

So, I finally got around to writing the pattern...sort-of. I've actually improved the fit of it. You can find the pattern here.

Don't have the time or inclination to make this for yourself? Check out my Etsy shop and have me make one for you!
