Third time’s a charm, and utterly charming!
Pattern: Sweet Baby Cap (free)
Yarn: Hello Yarn Sock, 1 oz., approx. 100 yards
Needle: Addi Turbo size 1 for magic loop
Gauge: 7.75 sts. per inch
Size: 6 mo.
I made the 6 mo. size but my gauge was tight, so the hat is 14″ in circumference, which is more of a newborn size. Other than that, I made no changes.
What an excellent use of sock yarn leftovers this is! If you didn’t have a hundred yards left of one yarn , you could stripe two different colors.
Knit it! It’s adorable.
3 oz., 140 yards
Next weekend’s MA Sheep and Wool, and my favorite Fantom Farm guys will be there, seducing me with their wools. In preparation, I’ve started spinning up the remaining rovings purchased from them at Rhinebeck. The yarns spun from them will be knit into my sweater for Rhinebeck this year, which is going to be some yoke number with the giant brown Rambouillet fleece spun up for the body and sleeves. These two colors are going into the sweater so far. I have one more brown-y green one and hope I can find at least one more brown-y green next weekend. I’m hoping to be able to get the colors to merge slowly from the natural brown fleece to chartreuse (shown in the linked 2 colors photo) at the collar. My new glasses are orange and chartreuse. I’ll be all matchy!
