Yes, yes, I know, it’s getting a bit boring with the hat and bootie combinations I’ve been knitting for friends. But in truth, they are just too easy to knit and gift when I find out that someone is expecting. So, here’s another combo I did for an ex-colleague of mine who recently had her second little girl.
I followed the pattern to Saartjes Bootees, but with my amendments to the straps and I added a little flower to the front. As I knew my friend was having a girl I was able to customise the booties.
I also customised the hat and just cast on for the DROPS hat that I make regularly, but then amended it by adding a pattern to it and adding a flower at the end.
I am really pleased with this and I think the ‘holes’ make it a little more girly (not sure whether to call them holes, but that’s what they are at the end of the day).
