Baby hat

29 September 2011

Aaaah. What better way to start off a new blog than with a baby. 

This cutie is sporting my attempt at the hat from Pickles' Baby Kit for Melker

Instead of the merino wool recommended I tried it out in a white bamboo tape that I picked up in the bargain basket at John Lewis. Originally intended for a new born, the hat proved so ginormous that it only just about fits a four-month old. I know, I know. I should do those tension testing squares before I launch myself into a project but my enthusiasm has resulted in an unexpected sartorial benefit.

If adjusted in the correct manner this masterpiece of milinery has a Phrygian cap  feel to it, thus transforming even the jolliest of infants into a Robespierre-supporting revolutionary.
