Last time, I showed you the cute pixie hat I knitted using leftover Stylecraft DK yarn and a gorgeous little pattern devised by Wild Daffodil.
Well, Sandra wanted to see it on a real life model so I asked my niece to send me a photo once she’d received her hat and tried it on the baby. She obliged and I thought I might as well share it with you too.
I told you he came
out in at a massive 10lbs didn’t I?
This was taken exactly one week later.
He doesn’t look sure about it and I won’t blame you for thinking he would look more at home in a baseball cap or hoodie – he looks like a real little bruiser doesn’t he?
Anyway, his Mum thinks he looks really cute in his pixie hat which is the most important thing and I did the right thing with those colours because note the pale grey body suit.
As if the Pixie Hat wasn’t enough, Daffodil has given us yet another free pattern in the form of a gorgeous little jacket which you can find on her blog here. It will fit 0-3 months but larger sizes are available in her Etsy and Ravelry shops. Details on her blog.
How blooming lovely is that? Although I can’t see that particular pixie wearing it!
No matter, I have more nieces and one is having a baby in June and it’s going to be a girl and I still have more Stylecraft scraps – what more could a knitter ask for?
