Baby hat & mitts

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009

I am so glad that so many of you are excited about the knit-a-long. I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I tend to collect patterns, magazines, books, print-outs, and electronic files on my computer. It was great to thumb through all of them and pull out the mitt patterns for this month (it was also go to do a little purging). I can't wait to see what other great patterns are out there when you post your finished off photos.

Here is my new go-to baby girl hat. It is the berry berry baby hat (free pattern). I used Bernat Bamboo in pink for the bottom of the hat and Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic cotton in Green for the leaf top. Personally I haven't found anything softer then the Bernat bamboo yarn. I use it for baby hats almost exclusively.
Now since this month is really about the mitts I knit up some little mitts to match the hat. I used this pattern (another freebie) and just adjusted the size a bit. Too cute. Bamboo might not be as warm as wool but this baby will only be small for the spring and summer so I think I can get away with it :)
My friend's baby came along four weeks early (everyone is happy and healthy) and I might have been not quite ready for her. I popped in this movie and cast on for the hat. By the time the movie was finished so was I. I am going to add a few books and drop the gift off this weekend.
I highly recommend this gift for any baby girls. I am still looking around for the perfect baby boy hat. Any suggestions?

If you did that hat in orange, it would be a perfect pumpkin hat for a fall baby of either sex.

that is adorable. your friend is going to swoon when she sees that sweet little set. my favorite baby boy hat is the simple baby hat by Susan B. Anderson...I've done it in stripes and I added a top knot to make it a bit more interesting. It's on my Ravelry page.. Baby hats and mitts are the best.

I hope to join you on the knit-a-long. Mittens? hmmm I may just have to sew a felted pair since that has been in my queue for some time now. I'll knit June's theme.

Happy Mother's Day!

Super cute! I need to get cracking on some baby knits for all my pregnant friends. I like the Norwegian baby hat from Hello Yarn, too.
