The photographer that I've been knitting for wanted a plain red set (hat and diaper cover). Plain red. Oh dear. I could do plain if the yarn was interesting, but plain red yarn and a basic hat....I put it off for a few days while I stewed about how I could do a plain but not boring hat. I initially thought of cables, but when I sat down to do that at the machine, and thought about the stitches I'd be converting from purl to knit....I looked for other option. I remembered the basic square hats I've made, and how a bit of tuck could liven it up! Bingo! How cute is this (41gr)?
And last, but not least, is a simple crochet hat to go with a Baby Surprise Jacket that has been waiting to be sewn up for quite a while. The pattern said it was for 20 1/2", which I think was around age 4, so I was trying to size it down, but just didn't know how big to make it, and just how big the sweater actually is....then all this custom knitting started and this got sent to the bottom of the drawer. I decided it needed to be finished! Less than an hour to finish off! It's a little loose on my 0-3 month "head" (24gr)
Cannot wait to see babies in these items! I have gone back to old posts and added photos from the photographer. Scroll down and have a look. I really can't believe how awesome my knits look on newborns in photos! I'm loving this!!
