I made this hat towards the end of my pregnancy, and at last my daughter is big enough to wear it (just about!)
The pattern came from this fabulous little book…
A collection of ten cosy knits for babies by Sarah Hatton. Now I do enjoy a bit of knitting of an evening, but I like to keep my projects on the small side as I’m too easily distracted by a new something-or-other I want to make. So these patterns are perfect for me, being sweet and simple; easy to follow and a pleasure to make.
Patterns include hats, jumpers, blankets and booties, suitable for age-ranges from 0-3 months through to 18 months. All using a variety of Rowan wool (always lovely stuff to knit with). There’s something just a bit different and lovely about these patterns – to my eyes they have a traditional quality without looking old-fashioned. Here’s a lush little frilly cardigan which I’m itching to make:
So if you have little people that you enjoy making for, or if a knitter you know is expecting a baby, this is a great little book to have.
And I’d love to know what you think of my gorgeous girl in her gorgeous hat…must confess to feeling proud of both.
(P.S The little crochet flower is my own addition, you can find out how to make it here)
