There are a lot of adorable baby berry hats out there. The ones that look like strawberries are especially cute. I decided to make a plum baby hat and picked out what I thought was the prettiest plum colored Caron Simply Soft Eco yarn I could find. Using Michele Sabatier’s free Berry Baby Hat pattern from Ravelry, I put aside countless other projects to get working on this. Using size 8 DPN’s, I quickly cranked this little hat out. I had some stray green alpaca yarn I picked up in Bolivia and held that double since it was rather thin.
When I finished, my husband informed me that it looked more like an eggplant than a plum. And sure enough, the next time I went to the store and saw an eggplant, this little hat was the spitting image!
