My first Hannkukah present is DONE! I know it doesn’t look like much, but my nephew needs a new hat (his little keppie grew) so he gets a brand new Rikke hat. I used Malabrigo Rios (one skein was more than enough) and I think it should go with whatever colour snow suit he end up swathed in this year. As always, the project modifications are in the Ravelry Project Notes.
The hat seemed to go over well with their mom, it has a lot of stretch and fits the kids heads (see last year’s Rikke – I never managed to corner my niece and get a picture of her in her Rikke). The garter stitch might keep them warm (it’s hard to know, they’re kids, the quality of the feed-back is limited).
Cotton Tulips Baby/Toddler Cardie Kits $56.50
We’ve put together some kits for the very popular Tulips baby cardigan with Mission Falls 1824 Cotton – it is 100% machine washable and kid tested! The kit contains 9 skeins of yarn in 8 colours (which we have co-ordinated and labelled for you to make life easier), and the easy to follow and easy to knit pattern. 5mm circular, 5mm double pointed needles, and stitch markers are not included in the kit, but we can throw that together for you too. The kit includes enough yarn to make up to a roomy 2 year old sweater, but if you want to make something in a larger size we can add the extra yarn you’ll need (just a few balls). Pattern sizes run from 6month to 6 years. If you are making a baby size you’ll have enough yarn left over to make a second sweater with the colours shuffled.
