My friend had a baby! So I made the baby (girl) a hat!! It’s Miss Dashwood from Knitty Winter 2004. I can’t handle how well it turned out. Looking through all of the possible baby knits- it made me want some kids myself! Which means that I will no longer be looking at things to knit for children. Since the project has to be mail delivered Beary and I had a little photo shoot before sending it off.
This is a shot full on. I used Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton. I know I could have gone pink, but I think that she’ll have enough pink things to wear and this will still coordinate with any outfit!
This is an earflap shot. I just knit a single stitch to for the cords. I didn’t even twist my stitches on it!
The underside is nice looking also. With all the purls. The edge was a picot cast on. It was a lot of fun, and I loved working on the bobbles!
A better view of the edge. Beary is getting a little tired of the shoot at this point. He’s thinking about all the other things he could be doing.
Here’s a not on a bear shot– still quite cute!
I would definitely recomend this pattern for all those babies out there. It was quick, cute, and fun!
