There are some knitting designers who come up with genious designs. One such designer is Irina Heemann, who started the Stricken Ohne Naht (seamless knitting). And her patterns are absolutely brilliant! I have eyed them up for a while, and had the perfect opportunity to make something when my youngest son’s preschool teacher was expecting a baby last year. I settled on the the Elsamuetze.
A very easy and quick knit, with very clever construction. It flew of my needles, and despite the fact that I was using DROPS BabyAlpacaSilke, a fingering yarn.
It’s a beautiful pattern that lies close to the baby’s head and keeps their little head nice and warm. I was pleased to have the DROPS yarn in my stash, as the Alpaca and Silk combination makes for a very soft and luxurious knit…perfect for a little baby.
The garter stitch and stockinette stitch combo is so effective. It just works! And we have one very happy little recipient. Doesn’t he look darling in his hat?
