Hand knitted in sailor blue and almost-white, this one-of-a-kind, custom-made hat for baby is soft, washable, and has a neck tie for safe keeping. I haven’t done much intarsia, ┬ábut this project inspired me to try some more. This special-request order called for a whale design, so I got to work with my graph paper to come up with a cute-but-somewhat-accurate whale image. Here’s the view from the front:


Because of the design, it’s only partially knitted in the round, and there’s a seam up the back. I tried learning how to knit in the round with intarsia, but you could still see a seam and I found it to be much more difficult. Here’s the view from the back:

And just in case the little kiddo who’s going to sport this hat needs to grow into it, I attached the ties high enough up on the brim that it can be folded up if necessary.
