This hat reminds me of 1950’s science fiction films and makes me think of a spaceman from that era. I named it Nicolino (which means little Nicolas), because I designed it on the day I heard that my friend had given birth to her little boy, Nicolas.
I designed this little baby hat to use all the odd ends of sock yarn that a lot of us knitters have lying around our houses. I think it would work beautifully with self-striping, plain or variegated yarn or with mixed colours leftovers (there are ideas for this at the end of the pattern).
