Last, but not least, an Even Jazzier Baby Hat for a welcomed one. The puffs on the hat can be made with the same solid color yarn as the rest of the hat, or melded – like melted rainbow sherbet – using a multi-color yarn, or each little bubble created in a different color. I posted photos after the pattern to give you ideas on how to jazz up the jazzy.
God bless you as you welcome little ones into the world!

And here’s the same pattern in a multi-color yarn …
And one with pastel puffs …
A few less rows of puffs, and a longer edging.
Tip: (see photo below) To make rows of colored puffs, bring the color of the moment along with you on the inside of hat as you make your way around. When you want to change to a different color, drop the first one – but don’t cut it. When you need it again, gently pull it down to the round you need it on.
