Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Matching baby hat....

Here is the matching baby hat I knitted with the wool left over from the baby dress in my last post.  The pattern is very easy.  I have knitted quite a few hats from this pattern  It's a simple, well-written pattern with no errors.

This is the newborn size and is quite stretchy so the baby should be able to wear it for a few months.  The pattern has 5 different sizes from preemie to toddler.

I particularly like the decreasing detail.  I think it makes a proper head-shaped hat with a roomy crown suitable for a boy or a girl.


  1. It's lovely Una and thanks for the pattern link its a good one because of the different sizes, it seems ages since I did any knitting, these little hats would be perfect for those odd balls. :)

  2. Love the stripes Una! The top detail is great too!
