FO: Beanie on a Handsome Baby Boy

I am calling this the week of hats, although this is only the second hat I am posting about this week, it makes me think that I’ll continue to for the rest of the week.

This latest one is the cable beanie that I’ve knitted a few times already, and a friend from my CrossFit class that I attended through the Summer last year ordered this for her little boy. By the way I am hoping to get back to my class, but have been plagued by sciatica problems…I blame my heavy baby boy!

I knitted the 9-12 months size after my friend gave me the right measurements. She liked the blue and turquoise combination, but I picked the exact combination.

I used some DROPS Baby Merino from the stash, but also ordered some to be able to complete the beanie.

I also knitted a pair of booties for her gorgeous boy, in a bigger than usual size, which actually worked a treat.

I just added another 10 stitches when casting on and kept the rest of the pattern as it was, so the booties ended up a size 11 cm as per my friend’s request.

I also picked some bigger buttons to go with the larger booties.

I know the colour combination isn’t actually the same as the beanie, but it’s as close as I could get it.

Here are both, the beanie and the booties together.

My friend’s gorgeous little man has been wearing his beanie a lot, as far as I know and she sent me this gorgeous picture of him…he is such a handsome little man.

FO: Baby Cable Hat

Following on from the booties I posted yesterday, here’s a little cable hat I made for the little fellow.

I used this DROPS pattern, which I’ve knitted a few times before and since. This time I used some leftover sock yarn from my stash.

As always, this was a very quick knit.

FO: Cable Hat

The third item I knitted for Luke’s teacher was this gorgeous cable hat.

I used this pattern, and some DROPS Safran, which is a cotton yarn.

I love how the top of the hat comes together like a beautiful crown, just gorgeous. Here are all the three things I gifted together.
