I improvised this hat! I was at the craft group and was going to make a kindle cozy but I forgot the pattern and in any case it later turned out I had taken the wrong needles anyway, so I cast on a hat, hats being the thing I’ve made so many of I can do them in my sleep. And because I only recently discovered how to do colourwork, and I had all these odds and ends of tweedy yarn to use up, I made up a little design.
I couldn’t work out how to reduce enough stitches without messing up the colour designs, so it’s longer/higher than I would normally make a hat. I made it as small as I could manage on the circular needle I had. Here’s Milo modelling it, its a little bit too big for him but not much. It would probably be perfect on a slightly bigger baby, say six- nine months? It measures 17cms across at the bottom.
So anyway, for the giveaway part: Recently, lovely reader Claire sent me a Wilkinet baby carrier (on which more another time), so incredibly generous! She didn’t include a postal address, so I couldn’t even send a thank you card, so I thought I’d do a random giveaway as a pay it forward type thing instead, and this hat appeared just in time.
I’ll keep it low tech: no complicated extra points or rafflecopter, just leave a comment telling me which little person you’d like to win this for, because I’m nosy. I’ll leave this open until Monday 24th.
