When I saw this pattern
on Claudine’s blog
, I just had to give it a go.
And they are so quick and easy to make that I couldn’t stop at one.
With a bunch of family and friends having babies this year, I think these are the perfect little gift. I’m planning on making a few more to put in my gifts cupboard. The green one has been gifted, along with the felted box and bib o’love, to a very appreciative friend who also knits, but with baby #2 almost due and baby #1 still quite young, plus with work and you know, life, doesn’t find much time to knit at the moment.
Pattern: Little Cables Hat
by Claudine from Knitting Box – the little cables add a bit of interest to the hat but are still very easy to do. It’s her first written up pattern and it is great – very easy to follow, nice crown shaping – thanks Claudine for sharing!Yarn:
cream hat is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino col 34005 – about 30-40g; green one is Rowan Cotton Glace col 812 Ivy. Both from stash (yay!) but not really stashbusters because they use so little yarn – unless I make about 20 of them!
Sticks: I knit a little tight, so used 3.5mm Addi dpns
2 days each – although if you had a whole day to yourself you could easily do one in a day.What I learnt:
You can never have too many little baby hats to give as gifts, or to charity – quick and easy!
