Now that I am back on my knitting buzz I decided to start to make patterns of my own. All these years knitting and I've never put my own ideas into practice.
So the first instalment is a simple baby hat with a skinny brim. I thought I was making a 3-6 month size that would fit Smem but I got my figures wrong. So this is a 0-3 month size, kindly modelled by a giant mug I have.
Pictures of a bigger size modelled on Smem will follow as soon as I have made another hat.
