finished the newborn hat!

I just finished the newborn hat- pictures to follow once Ilocate the camera. I really enjoyed making it- my first hat of any sort and it was a bit hard for me to find a pattern for newborns that was
A) easy
B) I could make on straights
C) using worsted weight yarn

I found one with mock cables that I started, making two inches of ribbing at the bottom. But I kept thinking the way the yarn was dyed.. the mock cabling would not show up as well. So I did a half inch of reverse stockinette as a 'border' or sorts, and then switched to regular stockinette.

I think next time I'll try the mock cables with a simpler yarn, or try knitting in the round.
