My design made the cover of Let’s Knit Magazine this month, big grin from me!
I have a couple of really cute [even if I do say so myself] baby bonnets featured in this issue. The first is a vintage look lace bonnet, in a contemporary colourway.
The second is a snuggly winter bonnet with a pretty 3D butterfly.
Isn’t the model beautiful?
Both these bonnets are worked in the new Jenny Watson yarn, Babysoft DK. The yarn was a dream to work with, 45% extra fine merino, 50% polyamide and 5% cashmere, it is butter soft. It’s manmade content makes it laundry friendly, making it perfect for baby knits. I can not recommend trying this yarn for yourselves enough!
I was really thrilled to be asked to design a ‘Vintage’ style bonnet kit for this issue of Let’s Knit Magazine. The contemporary colour yarn makes this a perfect unisex bonnet. Knit in one piece, with I-cord ties, this really is a quick and simple knit. Just perfect for a baby shower gift! Feeling adventurous? Why not crochet a flower for the side of the bonnet, of swap the I-cord ties for ribbon.
Named after the beautiful model, how cute is Betty?
Also in this issue of the magazine is ‘Hayley’
Hayley is a knitted ring binder cover, customise your folders with this simple fair isle design worked in Stylecraft Life DK yarn. It is a great introduction to stranded colour work or ‘fair isle’.
I hope you enjoyed both my design’s in this issue.
