I started knitting a baby hat a few nights ago and finished it last night. It just needs a pom pom on the top and then it’s completely finished!
I love the pattern, it was quick and easy to do, just rib and stocking stitch.
The pattern was number JB 010 by James C. Brett.
You can buy it from The Knitting Network here (affiliate link) if you want.
The wool was from Hobbycraft and is by The Women’s Institute. I loved the feel of it, but when I came to knit up with it, it knitted up really tight. So there isn’t much stretch with it.
I still like it, it just means with being so tight it’s a bit heavy and dense if that makes sense?
The perspective looks funny on the picture, but I did the hat in the 3rd size, which I think equates to 3 months old. I’m going to have a go at the cardigan above as it’s not a raglan and I could possibly finish it much quicker than the other one I finished a week or two ago.
Maybe I’ll see what yarn I have leftover from other projects, as I think this might be a bit heavy for a cardigan too. We’ll see!
All of the pieces in the pattern (a hat, a blanket and 2 cardigans) would all look good in Christmas colours.
So, that was a quick make that got done in 3 evenings. I’m pleased with the result, but I might have a look around for a lighter yarn with a bit more stretch…baby heads can be quite huge!!
