I reused the same Newborn hat pattern with my brim modification, from when I did one for charity. This time I used actual baby yarn I had on hand in a lovely variegated color scheme. The yarn is Baby Bee by Hobby Lobby in "Playtime Ombre."
Like before I did the same scallop edging for the hat. Super simple and cute.
I got ambitious and decided to also make a pair of booties in the same yarn. I found a pattern for Loopy Love Newborn Booties on Moogly blog. I cant help but think I've used another of their patterns as well, but I can't remember which. Anyway I decided to give it a go.
The pattern is pretty straightforward. Make a pair of bases and then work the uppers onto them. There is a left and a right which kind of made me a little confused, but with plenty of pictures I was able to figure it out.
|So you can see the edging folds down over the last row of fpdc.|
Booties: 1.5 hours (went slow, messed up a few times)
Update: Forgot to add that mom thought it needed a pom pom. Used this Fork Method tutorial to make a tiny pom. Not sure it came out spectacular but does add a bit of... whimsy?
