Designed by Aimee Alexander.

Aimee says, "I originally made this hat because I had a half a skein of sock yarn left over from a previous project. Little did I know it was to become "the hat" in a fleet of hats I'd knit for my son. He wore it everywhere; inside, to bed at night. He even bargained to wear it in the bath tub. I've since knit him a couple more, and because I take any opportunity to buy sock yarn, I've knit one for just about every kid I know. It's fast, it's fun and it's ever so cute."

    Cute little baby jester hat

    Posted by Linda S. Kagan on 20th Feb 2024

    I just finished knitting a pair of socks for myself when I got the news of a new baby boy born down the street. This pattern was a great way to use the leftover sock yarn! I knitted up the hat and made the pom poms (all from sock yarn) in 3 days. U chose size 0-3 months after weighing the leftover sock yarn and looking at patterns instructions.

    Loved the pattern. The brim is very cleaver. Wish I could post a picture
