Introducing baby Lincoln and his hat

Baby #3 was born early on Thursday morning.  Everything went well and we were happy to be at the hospital (we weren't with baby #2...not by choice!) to welcome our new little boy!  We named him Lincoln Alexander.  He is super cute and we are all happy to have him at home with us.  Before he was born though, I had it in my head that I wanted to make him a cute little hat to wear when we had to take him out.  After all, he was born in January!  I had plenty of little knit hats, but I wanted something ultra-cute!  After trying out a couple prototypes, this is what I came up with:

Just a simply two layer knit hat with ear flaps.  I added a little argyle embellishment and stitching on the side.


I love it!  It's just slightly too big for Lincoln right now, but it won't be big for long!  Doesn't he look so cute in it?
