how will i welcome the first day of spring? well with another f.o! hurrah!
this was a custom order. and nice little quick knit. i really enjoyed this knit. and it reminded me that colour work really isn't all that bad :) for real though, it's not ... :)
here are the deets...
pattern: heart hat for baby by: eba design.
yarn: knit picks swish dk. (seriously soft yarn!) in squirrel, and sirdar snuggly dk for the hearts.
mods: i only cast on 70 sts. as this is for a newborn baby... and it's already a toque that i think would be a bit big.. (but all the better to grow into).. but at 80 sts and even with smaller yarn and a smaller needle than what the pattern called for, i think that would create a toque for a 1yr old... (maybe that's just me)
i followed all decreases as written, but stopped at 18 sts... then drew my yarn through those remaining sts.
i love the 4x1 ribbing. surprisingly, i've never done that before for the brim of a hat. but i really love how it looks!!!
the result? one very cute baby toque.
because even though it is spring... it's still windy and wet out here... and babe's gotta keep warm!
this might become a go-to baby toque gift! and you don't have to stick with just hearts... do you have any quick go-to gift knits on your list? how are you spending your first day of spring? xo
