After I knit all those hats for HandmAid Craft Day, I had a request from the little girl for a hat for her. I usually knit some new hats this time of year anyway, since they’ve probably outgrown the old ones, but this year it wasn’t strictly necessary… they’ve stopped growing quite so fast, and I knit the hats a bit big last year. But who am I to say no when a 4 year old asks me to knit for her?
It was only this week though I got a chance to take a photo. I decided to make a non-elf ElfBaby (from Studio Miranda) for her. The yarn is Dublin Dye Merino Sock left over from last year’s Irish Yarn Club with Carol Feller. As you can tell by the great match to her coat, she is a fan of pink.
For the top of the hat I did 6 decreases every second row until I had half the stitches left, then I did 12 increases. I *thought* this is what Roseanne had done on the top of the hat she made her little boy, and copied it. I’m not sure it’s actually what she did though 🙂 Either way, I’ve been using it on hats ever since!
