Alfafa Hat for Stella

Sometimes living far away from friends is a real bummer.  Like when they get married and have a baby and you don't get to be there for either of those huge events!  What is a knitter to do but send some yarn-based love their direction.  Such is the way with my friend Beth and this hat for her and her husband's new baby Stella.  And by "new" I mean I was a little late getting this sent and I think Beth might have been back to work after her maternity leave before this hit their doorstep.  Oops!

Beth is a big museum-goer and art lover, so I figured the little (secret!) balcony of the Weisman Art Museum was a fun place to snap some pictures of the hat before sending it off. This little pixie hat was made using the Alfalfa Baby Hat pattern.

I am banking on the hopes that it looks a lot cuter on a baby's head than laying flat.  The forehead points and ear flaps are made by strategic increases and decreases and the ties are icords.

I am pretty psyched to have found a pairing of yarns in my stash to make this hat.  I ended up liking the look of the two strands held together better than I liked each of them individually. Yarn and project details available here on Ravelry.

As you can see, there wasn't any snow on the ground when I grabbed these shots, so I am hoping the hat made it to Stella before it got too cold in New Jersey.

12.17.14 - UPDATE!  That hat has made it to its new owner and she looks pretty darn cute in it.  Thanks to Beth for sending the picture!


  1. Darling, I really like the yarn you used.

  2. How sweet, Trinity! I know Stella will wear that in style!!!

  3. Trinity! We LOVE this hat! Thank you so much! I'll be sending you some photos of it on Stella's head soon. It is much cuter that way. :) Thanks again!
