This January sees a baby boom in our circle of friends and family. This weekend was the turn of our next door neighbours who welcomed a little boy – Jack Dylan – into their lives, a baby brother for Imogen.
So, as ever, I picked up my knitting needles to whip up a quick present. After searching through my books and magazines, I decided on this Simple Baby Hat from one of my favourite knitting books Purls of Wisdom by Jenny Lord. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Purls-Wisdom-Knitting-Jenny-Lord/dp/1846143020/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1357573748&sr=1-1
The hat is pretty simple, other than its knitted in the round (building up the DPN’S experience!) and uses easy K, P and K2tog stitches. I used a 4mm set of DPN’s and choose one ball of dark denim blue Sublime baby cashmere merino silk DK.
So cute! Can’t wait to see it on but think I’ll have a wait a few weeks…
