Knitted scalloped hat and matching mitts

Charlotte lost her favourite hat before we went to Australia. We searched everywhere for it. I hate losing things. Seriously hate losing things.

I decided that as the weather was still so cold that I would knit her a new one (don’t worry the hat she lost wasn’t her only hat, poor girl wasn’t walking around with no hat!). I decided on the Little Scallops hat by Maria Carlander, raided my stash and got knitting

The pattern was easy to follow and came together very quickly. This was my first attempt at stranded colour work…it worked out ok, but I think I could have left the yarn a little more loose in a couple of places. No big deal though as the hat fits just fine!

I made the pom pom using the finger wrap method. It worked out ok, but I wish that I could have made it a bit more full, but I ran out of yarn….

A while back she was admiring a pair of wrist warmers that I had bought in the sale (yeah, yeah, I bought them, should have knitted them myself, but they were a complete steal and I couldn’t walk away from them!)

Wrist Warmers for CP 2The pattern Charlotte chose for the wrist warmers was Mini Mitts by Jessie Koontz. The only adaptation I made was to cast on with a picot cast on. To begin with the picot cast on really hurt my head, but once I got into the swing of it I was fine! I’m glad I cast on in that way as it makes them just a little bit pretty

I’m so pleased I made these for Charlotte as she completely loves them and at the moment Spring is taking it’s time to blossom and we are cold!
