Getting back into the knit of things

Having been thoroughly besotted with and distracted by this little, but ever growing, FO (though, I suppose, he really is a WIP),

He looks like he's plotting mischief of some sort :)

I decided it was high time to cast on a yarn based WIP.

Of course, the yarny WIP is for the human WIP.

I used a some Double Knitting Baby by Stylecraft in “Baby Denim” to cast on the edge of, what became a heavily modified, Magic Coffee Baby Hat.

The crown of the hat was worked with FAB varigated DK.

To this in a few hours.

It’s got a lovely basketweave effect and I really like how the crown turned out.

It can be worn either way. The top picture shows it as I knit it up with rows of purl breaking up a staggered 2 x 2 rib.

The 2nd photo shows the inside which really looks like a basketweave with some purling thrown in for good measure.

Wyatt’s momma didn’t notice the difference between the two sides of fabric (even with concentrated squinting).

I used the stitch counts from the Magic Baby Coffee Hat for 2nd size up.

I’ll leave you with a parting photo of my snoozing grandbaby (no wonder I’m distracted!).

He approved of the top I was wearing. You can read about it here and here.

Happy crafting!
