ITTY BITTY KNITTY - FINISH

Every baby needs a hat.  At least I think so anyway. Winters are cold here in Kamloops so I like to make sure when I gift a little quilt, there is a hat to match.  Baby will be styling while out for her walk : )


I made this quilt out of these Kaffe Fassett fabrics and then went in search of some delicious yarns to match


these were perfect


pattern is by Viridian Hue

and the best buttons ever by two good claymates that I got here


SO cute!


I'm so glad hockey season is back because that's when I do most of my knitting.  I hope there's a game tonight because I am itching to cast on something!!!

Gorgeous little hat and I love the buttons. Is the yarn cotton? It kind of looks like cotton to me.

My heart is going pitter patter, Carla. So many delicious colour happening in this post! An itty bitty hat in Kamloops....now that is adorable!

I'm always envious of people who can actually knit ~ I seem to be all thumbs when I've tried it! That baby knit cap is so cute with those buttons, and the fabrics in the quilt are perfect!

Such a sweet little hat, and perfect match to the fabric. I started sewing my bindings on one of my many Christmas quilts during the hockey game. Great game so great stitching!

This is a gorgeous hat. It's a fab idea to have a matching quilt+hat set and these have such beautiful colours and patterns. I love your hanging hat photo with the balloon :)

I adore this hat!! Knitting baby hats is one of my favorite things to make for new baby gifts and this one steals my heart. Lovely!

What a gorgeous hat!

OPQuilt said...

I think the thing I enjoy most about your creations is your attention to detail--the colors, stitches, and even the buttons are all so perfectly appointed! That little hat is very sweet, and I know what you mean about having handwork in front of the TV! I'm hoping to get more of my handwork done with longer evenings relaxing.

So cute. I love the buttons, and love how it matches that beautiful quilt.

Pam @ Quilting Fun said...

Love the hat! Is it hard to make for a beginner knitter? What pattern and what wool? It looks so super soft and the colours are gorgeous! Love! And that they match the quilt, swoon!

Mama Pea said...

Both the hat and the quilt are adorable. What a nice idea to knit a hat to go with the quilt. A fun way to get to knit all those cute baby hats there are out there. Well done!
