Aviatrix baby hat

aviatrix hat

Another bit of baby knitting for you. This is the aviatrix hat (ravelry link). I found the pattern thanks to one of the girls in my Brussels Stitch and Bitch group – you can see her version here. I love this pattern, it uses wrap and turn/short rows, which was a new technique for me and is a lot easier than faffing about with double points (which I’ve also been doing), and knits up pretty fast. I’m already making a second one as a gift!

My only alteration for next time is that I’ll make the chinstrap slightly longer. A lot of the pictures I found show the button much higher up, but if I’d done that I don’t think it could be done up. I also messed the tension up a bit with this one, by switching between British (for the concentratey bits) and continental (for the straight knit rows) knitting, this time I’m knitting it all in British.

    This is adorable! You’re almost making me want to start knitting… I did ask for some tunisian crochet hooks for Christmas which I’m pretty excited about 🙂

    Also, great news about the flat in your last post, I hope it all works out!

    I love this pattern, I’ve knitted it quite a few times for babies and it’s so cute.
