Bubble Wrap Baby Hat… (reversible)

IMG_0022 IMG_0023 IMG_0024 IMG_0025While on trip to D.C, I had lots of hours in the car to knit. I am in the process of making a lot of very classic cuffed baby hats to donate. I was getting tired of the same old pattern. So I decided to try a new one. However with poor cell reception in places, I ended up making up my own pattern.

Here it is…
