bunny hat!

i made another hat! this one is baby-sized, and is for a soon-to-be-born niece. here it is, ably modelled by a bottle of grapeseed oil (hmm, i guess this means the geodesic hat i knitted a while ago is baby-sized too):

bunny hat

it’s the bunny hat from stitch n bitch nation, except that i didn’t embroider a face on it, and i attached the ears differently, and i used super-cheap yarn. i liked the hat shape without the ears, and might end up knitting other versions of it. i learnt how to knit i-cord for this pattern, which was a lot easier than i’d thought it would be.

here are some photos of other baby hats made by jennifer small, who designed this hat. so cute! i love her version of the bunny hat with little knitted vegetables attached.

the next thing i want to try from this book is the “lucky” cardigan. i might try knitting a gauge swatch this week.

james: yes! amazing. i was thinking it would be easy to do a black version of the bunny hat (without ears) with a skull & crossbones on the front. or any picture, really.

miranda: thanks! it was fun to knit.
