I've Got Knits :: A beanie for a little girl . . .
This knitting bug has really taken hold of me. How easy are beanies?! Yay for beanies, a knitting-junkie's quick fix. As I don't have daughters, my long time friend Robyn-Doll said she'd gladly step in as a model (what a good friend! She was a little dismayed at not being able to find her eye lashes though . . )
I got the pattern from this book.
I really like that three different stitch pattern combos, (rib, seed stitch and stocking stitch) make this simple beanie look fabulous. But the cherry on the cake is the knitted rosette, no? A very quick knit in the front and then back of the stitch creation. I am feeling inspired and hope that this little feeling grows into full-blown creativity as I would love to design my own beanies!
I hope the little girl it is going to loves it as much as I do! I might have to make an adult size version for myself.
Anything taken a hold of you lately?
