The hats and booties are done and adorable … if this Queen Bee does says so herself!
The patterns were both found on Ravelry and the hat pattern was flawlessly written. The pattern is Heirloom Stitches’ Little Boy Blue Hat. It knits up a hat for a 12-24 month child. I think this is a great gift to give to a new baby … because people are apt to get teeny tiny clothes but not much for the baby when he or she gets a bit bigger.
The booties were a bit more difficult and had a couple of places where I had to go to work “fixing” the pattern. So, next time, when I have to make some booties, I’ll be writing my own pattern. The pattern, also from Ravelry, is called Seamless Cable Booties by Crumbgrubbers Knits. It’s a free download and I just noticed that there are comments that repair the “problems” – so, the problems were mine! LOL! I made one pair for a girl and one for a boy – if one can’t figure out which is which … well … ’nuff said!
