Holiday Hats for Babies by Debby Ware is a treasure trove of cut hats for every occasion you can imagine, up to and including Arbor Day. The patterns incorporate chenille and fuzzy yarns and would be a fun way to use up colorful scraps.
The hats are fancy without being terribly over-the-top. An ambitious mommy or grandma could give her favorite little ones a hat for every occasion.
