WHAT MAKES THIS CARROT HAT UNIQUE: Exceptional craftsmanship and top-quality yarns.

I want you to be proud to own and wear my creations -- and proud to give them as gifts . So I do everything possible to give you the very best.

I will carefully knit your carrot hat by hand, one stitch at a time, with attention to every detail. Only the best, time-tested traditional tools and techniques will be used, no knitting machines or other short cuts, ever.

Yarn quality is every bit as important to the quality of the final product as craftsmanship and design. So your hat will be knit with premium-quality yarns. The yarns are made of natural fibers, rather than acrylic or other synthetics. These natural yarns contain no toxic dyes or other chemicals and are safe for even the most sensitive skin. And quality yarns won't "pill", like other yarns will.

Your hat will be knit "in the round", so there will be no unsightly or uncomfortable seam in the back.

When I'm done knitting it, I will carefully "finish" your hat, by hand washing and then blocking it, and then allowing it to air dry. Proper "finishing" is time-consuming and takes an extra day, so many knitters and crocheters skip this step. However, careful finishing makes a big difference in quality: Your baby's hat will fit better, hold its shape better, and look its absolute best. And, although I live in a pet-free and smoke-free home, careful finishing also assures that your hat will be as fresh and clean as possible when it arrives to you.

When you see this little hat I think you'll agree that it all adds up to quality that shows.

STYLE: Babies and toddlers come in all shapes and sizes, of course. So this little carrot hat features a soft, rolled hem, which you can roll up or down for exactly the fit you want. I chose a yarn that is super soft and stretchy, for best fit and maximum comfort for your little one. The rolled brim also allows for some extra growing room. (If you'd prefer a ribbed brim, just let me know.)

The body of this hat is a bright carrot color. The carrot top is a cheery spring green. The top is securely attached, of course, so it won’t come off. I designed the stems so they’ll stand up, but I leave the tops free to move, just like they would on a real carrot.

YARN: The hat body (the carrot part) is hand-knit in a premium quality Merino, cashmere and microfiber blend yarn that is imported from Europe. The stems are made of a top quality, 100% pure, natural cotton.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Merino, it comes from a special breed of sheep (called Merino, of course!) Merino is often considered the finest, softest wool in the world, due to its many excellent qualities.

Merino wool is lanolin free, so it's never “itchy” or irritating, even against the most sensitive skin. And it breathes exceptionally well, so it won't get clammy, like acrylics and other synthetics can.

Because Merino “breathes” so well, it’s more comfortable in a wider range of temperatures than most other fibers. That means this little hat will keep your little one's head warm and cozy outdoors, and yet still be comfortable indoors, as well.

Cashmere adds extra softness and a luxurious feel to this yarn, and the microfiber adds soft strength and a touch of body.

The unique blend of fibers makes this yarn exceptionally resilient. So this little hat will gently and comfortably hug your little one's head, while remaining soft and elastic enough that it will never bind.

In fact, this yarn is so resilient that your little one may be able to wear this hat considerably longer than you'd expect.

Another reason I love this yarn is that it is free of the harsh chemicals that are sometimes used to make yarns machine washable. So no toxic chemicals will come into contact with your baby's sensitive skin!

In short, I think it's the perfect yarn for these little hats!

SIZES: This hat will fit most newborns up to six months of age.

These hats are very stretchy and offer lots of growing room, so no need to upsize.

100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: My goal is to create items you will be delighted to own and wear, and proud to give as gifts. I care about craftsmanship and attention to detail, and I use the very best yarns available. So I have every confidence that you'll be happy with any item you order from my shop.

However, I also understand how difficult it can be to purchase something we can't see, feel or try on before buying it. So, if you're not absolutely delighted with your purchase, for ANY reason at all, please let me know right away. I offer a 100%, no-hassle, satisfaction guarantee -- and I stand by it! I'll even refund your postage, both ways!
