Ava Lynne Baby Hat

A few weeks ago my cousin gave birth to her third child, a girl, named Ava Lynne. She is a beautiful little girl and as soon as I saw a picture of her I was inspired to create my first baby hat pattern. As you can see, I even named it after her. This hat has a fairly simple eyelet pattern with decreases that are worked in so the little squiggles go up to the crown of the hat.

I have included sizing for Preemie up to 4 years old (newborn size pictured below), but I haven't tested all the sizes yet so if you see an error let me know. 

Enjoy!
