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.
