It is 2 and 1/2 weeks to Christmas
Quick Knits for BabiesMinnow hat is adorable and a quick knit. Knit as written in sock yarn, it fits a newborn with a head size of about 14". The same pattern knit with DK yarn and you have an 18" size for somewhat older kids. Other than the change of yarn to create the larger size, the only change I made was to increase the spacing between decrease rounds when you start the tail.
