Hey all! I think it is about time we had a giveaway around here! This is a hand knit (by me no less) baby hat with a rickrack flower that should fit about a 3-6 month old. My babies have notoriously big heads and they can still squeak it on at 8 months. If you want it, leave a comment, and I will announce the winner next Friday. Hey, you could always use it as a gift!

Is it the first comment that gets it?? It would be lovely for my niece. . .
Very cute! I’d love to know how to make the ric-rac flower!
Whoo Hoo!! Love it!! Count me in!
So cute. Giveaways are fun. I’m having a baby in Oct. It would be perfect for the winter!
Cute hat. Ric-rac is great!
What a beautiful hat! I would love to know how to make the flower. Thank you!
Okay, Hallie and I want in. 🙂 She is due October 11th and would look lovely in that cute hat.
What an adorable hat! I’m expecting a second little girl in October, along with just about everyone else it seems… it sure would be a sweet way to keep that little head warm!
Super cute! Did you follow a pattern or design this yourself?
How Great! My Abigail would look so cute in it!
I love it! What a great flower!
We are looking forward to our first grandbaby this Oct. Count me in on the adorable hat!
Hi all –
I did make up the hat pattern, but the ric rac dahlia I based off of one I saw somewhere. I think if you google it you could find insructions. I used a felt circle and then sewed the ric rac through each point onto it, starting at the outside and moving to the inside, and finishing with a vintage button.
I know of a wee baby girl due this winter who would no doubt look lovely in that hat… count me in!
Looks so cute – perfect for my daughter!!
I too have large-headed children but only boys so no cutey-pie hats over here…
Our sixth child, a baby girl is due in October, the 12th to be exact. I think my wife would love it. Count us in.
Am I the only man having commented? Maybe I should have used an alias.
Very cute! Our new baby girl is due December 18, and if her head is anything like those of her brother and sister, she will be happy to have a large size hat!
Well, we hope the baby due this winter is a girl and if she’s as cute as her big sister this hat will fit her just right!
count this as vote two for hallie……who like her siblings (and father) will have a BIG head!
I LOVE the hat! I am actually trying to teach myself the basics of knitting after being inspired by those advent mittens! Thank you for sharing your encouragement and wisdom of biblical womanhood with mothers through your books and articles.
Very cute and perfect for the fall and winter!
I am expecting and this would be the perfect thing for keeping the large head which I have the propensity to carry warm. Count me in.
Yes please. Baby due in December and that’s pretty darn cute! Nice job!
!I love this hat!! I have been trying to talk some of the ladies in our church into making these kinds of fancy hats with the flowers for little girls. I don’t do any yarn work anymore and would love to see more of these sweet hats on little ladies. I would love to buy some for my own little ladies. Nice job Rachel!
Love the hat…very beautiful!
What a good day to check in on this blog :). Count me in for the drawing–you know I’ll never actually make one of those!
Sure, why not? 🙂
The hat is adorable! I have a niece who would look so cute in it, she has a birthmark on half of her head so she wears lots of hats 🙂
My Bunkin is due on Thanksgiving Day and, if “she” is indeed a she, she would look lovely in that hat. And-I can’t knit—though I covet the opportunity to learn…
Thanks for offering it up for grabs…
You did a lovely job. I never would have thought of making a ricrac flower. I may have to try that some day-I have an almost five year old that would look great with that as an accessory to shirts, belts and hairclips! 😉
Now that hat is quite lovely… our little girl is due the first week of January. Epihany no less. 🙂 Yes, count me in!
sooo precious. I think my little one, due in Oct, would definitely get some use out of this!
A friend of mine is about to have the baby girl of her dreams. She’d pee if she saw this cute hat!
I would love to have it to give to my sister who’s the mother of 2 boys. I’m so hoping for a grandaughter for her. Her first son’s wife is expecting in February!
Our second daughter is due October 23rd. I would love to have that for her. It seems a bunch of girls are due this October!
Super cute, count me in!
I would love it, too!
My 16th grandchild is a lovely little girlie and # 17 and #18 are on the way. Surely one of them will be able to wear it. Thanks.
Now that new bestekid of mine would look quite smashing in that hat…
What an adorable little hat. I could just picture it on my wee little one’s head!
I just found your blog yesterday and have been enjoying it so much! Just wanted to say hi and add a comment.
What a beautiful hat, my niece/nephew (don’t know which, yet!) who is on the way would look cute in it! 🙂
Looking forward to reading/commenting more, and glad to find your blog!
Okay, so I’m feeling very left out . . . I’m not expecting in October, or January, or anytime in the foreseeable future! I was thinking that adorable hat would be a perfect addition to my hope chest, but it’s way too cute for that! It would probably be set up on a shelf somewhere and I’d smile every time I look at it, picturing a little October baby of my own wearing it someday . . . 🙂
Beautiful!!! My baby is 5 months old. She would look adorable in that!! 🙂
If I’m the winner, the next baby girl born in our church gets it. There’s a baby expected in February, but we’re not sure which flavor yet. 🙂
Our fourth daughter, Isabella, could use something new–instead of hand-me-downs from her older sisters 🙂 Kansas winters are pretty cold, and little heads with minimal hair need to be kept warm!! It is beautifully done!
Ooh! It’s beautiful. Please count me in…
Coram Deo, Lola
It is lovely. I’m due with a girl in 8 days. Count me in too.
Oh little knit hat
upon a wee soft head to be sat
its striking blue flower
will leave you not sour
but wanting sweet, knitted goodness last
…yeah for little head Coopers!
“but wanting sweet, knitted goodness TO last” 🙂
Very cute! I would love it!
My lil petite girl would look Darling in that! I am making an outfit right now in those colors… 🙂
Not too increase my chances or anything but as I was scrolling back up I noticed my mom (Chautona) had the same idea! what a hoot!
It’s beautiful. I’ll join the 54 others in vying for a chance!
Lovely! What a great contest 🙂
This hat wont fit my 8 year old duaghter no matter how hard I force it and my other 4 are boys (the beautiful flower would be wasted on them..alhtough it IS blue) BUT I know a little girl due in December who will need her head kept warm and who doesnt need a giant blue flower?
My fourth daughter would love her very own hat!
Would you consider sharing the pattern with us? Or was it something you just whipped up?
I love this little hat! Any chance you’d be willing to post a tutorial on how to make the flower?
Well I guess I can’t put it on my 3-6 month old boy this fall but it certainly would be a beautiful gift and I have just the girl in mind! Thanks!
That’s the cutest thing, but don’t give it to me.
All six of my babies have yanked every hat right off their heads. Are we the only hatless family out here?
Maybe I’ll knit one (as a gift) whenever I finish all these Advent mittens.
thanks; count me in 🙂
Not that it is all about the DTA (that is supposed to be $$) but from the excitement you have gotten in numerous responses, it seems you have a possible money maker on your hands. hmmmmmm 🙂
Not to discount the fact that it is always fun to win a drawing!!
Oh, how cute!
What a cute little hat. I love it! Don’t give it to me though because I have no little heads to put it on. However, I would love the pattern.:)
How wonderful! Perfect for my winter baby due in Feb!
Love the rick-rack flower!
Very cute hat. I love the big flower, it is a creative addition to the hat.
I absolutely love this adorable hat! I don’t have a child of my own who could wear it, but I’ve got plenty of friends having babies. 🙂 I’ve been reading your blog for a handful of months and am so refreshed by your quest for godliness and feminity. Thanks for blogging!
I don’t just want it, I would love one in my size!
What an adorable hat! Would love to have it!
What a wonderful hat. Count me in!!
Does age have any bearing in your choice?? I am a grandmother and would love to bestow this little hat on a grandchild. My granddaughter, Evangeline, is nearly two with eyes like blueberries. I think I could MAKE it fit her!
The east coast needs to be able to exhibit handwork like this….
Besides the consideration of age….If I replied often could that up my chances of winning this giveaway?
“Do you know, I saw the prettiest hat you can imagine, in a shop window in Milsom Street just now — very like yours, only with coquelicot ribbons instead of green; I quite longed for it.” –Isabella, Northanger Abbey
Okay, so the flower is blue and not bright poppy red, but I couldn’t resist. Count me in.
What a fun idea! Thanks!
Love it, Rachel!
It really is lovely
