Pro-Breastfeeding Infant Hat


The Boob Hat has been making the rounds–blazing a trail all through fb and pinterest. So naturally, I’ve been asked several times to tackle it–and I have. I present you with my version of The Boob Hat!

The pattern is pretty straight forward. You need some skin toned yarn and–well, nipple colored yarn….   Those of us with breasts already know that these shades can range through lots of tones, so really any combo will work.

I’ve used for the main part of the hat an eggshell color and for the nipple, baby pink.

Onward to the pattern!
