~Well as you know, I NEVER get to knit with pink or any pastel yarn. (I guess I did add a tiny smash of pink once to one of the boys vests--Yes, they noticed and didn't like it!). Therefore it was gobs of fun to make this itty bitty hat for a darling new babe of a dear friend.
~Details: Used the "Bundle of Joy" pattern from Isela Phelps that I found on Ravelry.
I added stripes versus her solid color design--of course stripes are much more interesting than a solid color. I changed color every fifth row because I prefer large stripes. The yarn I selected was Sublime baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK knitted on a size 5 dpns.
~(Sorry for all the photos on our teak table...many times I forget to take photos of the objects that I give away as presents, so this was a quick photo opportunity).
~this was the perfect patten that I was looking for to match the design in my mind. I wanted some sort of ribbing on the brim versus the usual rolled end brim. I wish it was a tad bit smaller to really fit a just-met-the-world newborn, yet still happy with the outcome overall...Next is Easter and sewing projects. Adieu.
