A sweet little hat that is perfect for using up all those scraps in your stash.

The whole hat uses approx 50 grams of yarn.

 Stripes are addictive by themselves but seeing that slip stitch pattern emerge really had we wanting to keep knitting until it was finished.

 A great unisex pattern to whip up for a gift.

I gave T a couple of colour options and of course she chose blue. It paired up very nicely with some grey left overs I had kicking around.

Little T is just getting over a bad bout of pneumonia and actually her first time being sick other than a runny nose. It was quite a shock for all of us when we found out she was so ill, at first we suspected the flu but when she wasn’t getting any better we knew something was up.

Its so nice to see her smiling face in these pictures and know that she is back to the fun loving little girl we are used to seeing.

Definitely a deserving recipient of one of Mama’s hand knit hugs!

  1. I’m so glad T is feeling much better now. She looks lovely and healthy. Perhaps from the warmth of her mama’s lovingly handknitted hat! Very cute hat and the construction looks very clever.

  2. That is a fabulous hat!

    Sorry to hear that T was so ill but glad she is feeling better.

  3. I’m so glad T is better ! I’m sure it was a worry for all of you . Stella had pneumonia as well in January . She ended up in the hospital for a few days .She ‘s back to normal now , what a relief …

    I love that hat and have added it to my queue ! T is just adorable and it suits her so well ! Have a good weekend .

  4. It is so scary to have a sick kid. We are just getting better after a month of everyone in our home being sick. Sending you healthy thoughts!

  5. Oh, I love that hat!
    I really need to knit one for one of my kids 😉
    And I absolutly need to check out that vampire book! Love that genre. I have read the first book in the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa and liked it very much!
    Have a great Sunday!

  6. That is a lovely hat. Love that your beautiful model is back to her normal. I know how hard is for the entire family when the little ones are sick. Have a great week!
