Archive for the ‘knitted baby’ Category

I saw this pattern by Susan B. Anderson and just HAD to make this baby hat. It is called Sweet Peas and can be found as a download for $5.50 here.

The idea was to make it for grandson Asher, but seeing as I didn’t pay close enough attention to the size, I messed up and made it in a 2T. The AshMan should be wearing a 12 month hat this winter so this one is up for sale.

Anyway, the pattern calls for two skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic, but I used “what I had” in yarn… the green I used is Vanna’s Choice Dusty Green acrylic 3.5 oz yarn. The blue has a chenille effect and is TLC Amore. The color is Seagrass and the yarn is 80% acrylic and 20% nylon worsted weight.

So I was knitting the hat when in walks a baby. Oh yeah. She is only 16 months but I figured a little baby head is better than no baby head, so I put the tips on my size 7, 16″ circulars and plopped the hat upon said baby. It just so happens she is the cutest 16 month old on the planet, so she made my little hat look soooo cute!

Here’s the adorable result!

This was shortly after a scrumptious spaghetti dinner…

Anyway, I finished the “peas” yesterday and since my little model had to go home, I photographed it with a towel stuffed inside, hence the lumpiness!

So there it is in a nutshell… or pea pod… I enjoyed making this so much that I will be making a few more in the next days. This one whipped up in no time at all and besides, the AshMan needs one and there is something in the water here as several friend’s babies are due soon. I think there will be a whole GARDEN OF PEA PODS on my knitting needles!

I forgot to mention that I took the hat to church and tried it on a baby head and it fits a 2-3 toddler just fine!

Thanks to Susan B. Anderson for her delightful designs! And by the way, check out Susan’s new Spud and Chloe line of yarn here!
