Here they are: the finished baby hats. I made a couple of them earlier this year – before I started the blog – so obviously I didn’t take any pictures before I gave them away. I’ll try to change that in the future….
Here are the Daisy Hat and the Rosebud Hat (from itty-bitty hats by Susan B. Anderson) for Baby A. born on March 14th to my lovely English/German friends who moved from London to Dresden last year.
Models are Teddy and Mr. Bear. Fortunately, Mr. Bear (left) had no problems to be the model for a girl’s hat! I hope he won’t mind doing that again as my friend M. from Germany just had a wonderful baby girl. Baby C. was born on April 24th and I started knitting a couple of hats for her… Mr. Bear comes from the Teddy Bear Factory
in Vermont, I got him years ago when I went to the U.S.
Teddy is G.’s bear and is my usual baby hat model. Teddy got so upset when I made this hat with ears (still from itty-bitty hats) and gave it away, that I had to
make one for Teddy to keep…. The blanket under Teddy was part of the gift and my very first blanket.
For the new baby hat I have tried the figure 8 cast on and at the moment it looks like this. Casting on was not as bad as I thought – probably problems now will start to dribble in…
