I went to an old friend’s birthday party for her kiddo today, Rosie, who turned two. I’d given her a hat a year ago, but it barely fit, so I wanted to make one she might be able to use for a while. This is what I came up with. Brian really likes the colors. I’m pretty happy with how it came out, too! Here’s the front view:

Hand knitted in sailor blue and almost-white, this one-of-a-kind, custom-made hat for baby is soft, washable, and has a neck tie for safe keeping. I haven’t done much intarsia,  but this project inspired me to try some more. This special-request order called for a whale design, so I got to work with my graph paper to come up with a cute-but-somewhat-accurate whale image. Here’s the view from the front:


Because of the design, it’s only partially knitted in the round, and there’s a seam up the back. I tried learning how to knit in the round with intarsia, but you could still see a seam and I found it to be much more difficult. Here’s the view from the back:

And just in case the little kiddo who’s going to sport this hat needs to grow into it, I attached the ties high enough up on the brim that it can be folded up if necessary.

Wee little baby Bowie is sporting a tiny Reeds Hat with earflaps in magenta. Could she be any cuter??

Slowly, but surely, I’m starting to make baby things.  I made this hat for baby Elliot out of Malabrigo’s beautiful green merino wool. What a cutie.
