on my needles -- a bat and a bee

More little Halloween hats for the NICU!




The orange hat the is the Basic Beanie from Warm Hats for Wee Noggins. I love that textured knit pom pom! She also uses it on the stocking caps in the book, which I seem to be steadily knitting my way through. I found the instructions for the garter stitch bat over at Natural Suburbia

The bee is a free pattern from Creative Knitting. I love those little antennae and plan to knit more little bug hats in different colors, but I think I'll use the Basic Beanie pattern so that I can vary the sizes a bit.

Those hats are so cute! Thanks for the link for the free pattern. I might have to find some yarn and knit up one or two to donate.
