Dashing through the snow - This is Knit
Dashing through the snow - This is Knit
Well, it's not actually snowing, but these little hats have the dashing part all wrapped up - if you need a quick project for a baby before Christmas, there's plenty of time to knit one (or even two)! This is the Little Scallops hat by Maria Carlander. You'll find a link to the free pattern at that Ravelry link. This wee hat has all you could want - a little colourwork, a simple stocking stitch fabric, a practical slouchy shape. Our examples are made in Debble Bliss Baby Cashmerino, so they'll wash and wear like a dream. They're the smaller size of the two sizes, and they took about a third of a ball of the main colour and a fifth of the contrast, so they're perfect for using up those odds and ends. And best of all, they're fast! The two of these took a couple of leisurely evenings to make, so they're the perfect relaxing knit in front of the TV after a day's rushing about.
