FOs: Bright Bebe Bonnets

More stash-busting preemie hats for the local neonatal unit!  These free! patterns were all done with 40-60 total yards of Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton in colorways 32605 Beige and 32602 Celery:

MODS: CO 56 sts (down from 64) and continued in pattern for 5in (down from 6in) before crown decreases

MODS: CO 54 sts (down from 60); all the reverse-stockinette purling with cotton was really hurting my hands, so I knit the entire thing from the wrong side!

Berry Baby Hat [Rav] by Michele Sabatier

MODS: CO 48 sts (down from 64) and did not switch to a larger needle, and started leaf stranding after 3in (down from 4in); I also totally ran out of the green yarn, so I fudged the decreases for a more severely sloped crown.

And here's the five all together (first two blogged here):

Now to knit and steek a coffee cozy
and knit and felt a TARDIS fascinator!

...wait what?
