Isn’t this just adorable? I’m hoping it will increase baby squee* by up to 50%
This is a gift for Simon’s Mum’s Friend’s Granddaughter (currently ‘bump’), Simon’s mum asked me to make something but left the choice up to me and rather than knock out another pair of booties (yawn) I thought I would try out this über cute pattern from Crafts Beautiful (via Ravelry of course!), you have to sign up to get the free pattern but I think that’s fair enough.
This is really easy to knit and took no time at all, I liked that I learnt a new technique – how to knit an icord – for the stem, which was easy but good to be trying new things. I didn’t buy an extra pale pink colour for the four rows before the stem for obvious reasons and it’s a bit annoying that you only use a tiny amount of the cream and green but I’ll just have to use it up on more booties…
I used this gorgeous Rico Design Baby Classic yarn which is super soft and comes in great colours and only £2 a skein from www.crafty-yarn.co.uk bargain!
It’s so cute, I can’t wait to see it on, I’ll have to make sure I get some photos.
