Umbilical Cord Hat

On Thanksgiving weekend I took a short break from knitting my skirt, and whipped up a little something for my nephew, who is 7 months old. This is from Stitch’N’Bitch and it is very easy to make and super cute.
I really winged it on the sizing, as the wool I used had lost its label long ago, and I didn’t really know my nephew's current head size.
However, it turned out pretty darn cute, and the umbilical cord was just right.
Baby boy liked it, though it was a little on the small side. It won’t last all winter. Oh well, I’ll just have to knit him some more goodies!! In the meantime, the skirt is inching towards completion.
