There was anticipation in the air on this day. My friend Jaime’s baby was due the day these photos were taken. Playing with hats and taking pictures may have been the last thing she wanted to be doing, but at least it served as a temporary distraction. (I hope? Thank you, Jaime!)
I designed this hat to coordinate with my Sunday Sweater pattern many, many months ago but only recently felt ready to send it out to test knitters and prepare the pattern for sale. These things make me nervous! I didn’t have a name for the hat, not liking the sound of “Sunday Hat.” On the eve after Jaime’s visit, as I clicked through my photographs from the day, I knew I had to name it for her dear little daughter, Aibhilin. Her nickname is Aibhie, so my hat became Aibhie’s Hat (It’s an Irish name and the bh is pronounced ‘v’ so Aibhie sounds like Ay-vee.)
My Aibhie’s Hat pattern includes instructions for knitting sizes from newborn to adult. It coordinates nicely with my Sunday Sweater pattern, though it can certainly stand alone. If you purchase both patterns at once, you will receive $2 off using the coupon code ‘Sunday’. If you previously purchased the Sunday Sweater pattern, you can receive $1 off the purchase of Aibhie’s Hat by using the code ‘Sundaysweater’ at checkout.
If you’d like to purchase my Aibhie’s Hat pattern you can buy it here . You can purchase my Sunday Sweater pattern here. Both patterns are available in my Ravelry Store. I have knit more versions of this hat in recent months than I have had time to photograph. You can see details on some of my projects here, here, here and here.
Thank you all for your support!!!
p.s. Look who arrived about a week later…
