First Baby FO

February 18, 2012

I wanted to make a strawberry hat for the baby. I used KnitPicks CotLin because it’s a summer baby, even though the new baby size is rather large. The pattern is available free online, but I was using a translated version from a magazine that was photocopied, and the chart key didn’t make it (either to the magazine or the photocopy I was using)… so I did the chart piece completely wrong and had to rip it back. ­čśŽ I caught back up though and I think it came out pretty cute!

Mist was kind enough to model, even though her fur hasn’t grown back from when she got shaved before Christmas. She’s not very self-conscious.

This is a better shot of the hat.

Some old recycled sweaters became a birthday crown for a 3 year old this week.
