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