Last spring, I made the modern baby bonnet and cabled booties from the book Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. I love this book and there are so many fun projects (although they all seem to be knit flat and then seamed together rather than being in the round, so keep that in mind if you hate seaming).
I tried the hat on O a month ago and it was huge! So I knitted another hat with the same yarn but one size down and one needle size down. I finished the new hat a few days ago and tried it on O. And it fits, but is none too big. And now the too-big one is only a tad bit too big. Baby heads grow so quickly!
The 3-6 month hat on the left, 0-3 month on the right. I love his cheeks!
This is a great hat style (the chin strap means it doesn’t slide up like most hats). Looks like we are all set for blue hats this season! The booties are still a bit big but fit over socks.
I may even have enough of this skein left to eek out some little mittens to round out the set and be ready for some fall fun.
