Celebrity Jester Hat

Apparently, celebs are buying this hat for their little ones so I wrote a pattern for toddler size, 16" circumference. It will be available for download at a price of $2.00 as soon as I can set it up with Paypal and Ravelry. My designs have been sold in a yarn shop but this is my first time selling online and it is a learning experience for me.

Baby Jacket and Hat in Kertzer Super 10

The jacket pattern is the "Baby Albert" from Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch.
The yarn is mostly Kertzer Super 10 mercerized cotton, also sold as Tahki Cotton Classic and other names.
The hat started out to be "Ribbons and Bows" from a book called Baby Knits, Hats and Booties by Debby Ware, et. al. I didn't like the finished look, probably due to my choice of yarn, so I morphed it into a baby jester type hat. (btw, you'll just want to hug the baby models in this book - unbelievably cute!)
