Day 8. Don’t Be Jelly. Toddler beanie.

Here is the latest design from RRC!

2015/01/img_2052.jpg

My son has been begging me for a Green hat. I ended up making it sizable for ages 1-3 years. So it fits his brother too. He even named it himself. He said it looked like a jellyfish. It’s also green. The color of jealousy, which is a very relevant lesson for my three year old, now that his younger brother is almost as fast as he is when getting a toy!!! So we tell him when he gets jealous to “don’t be jelly”. It works half the time. Anyway I hope you enjoy this fun and easy beanie I came up with.

This FREE pattern can be found HERE

Again, one of my top favorite designers. I have had my eye on this pattern weeks before I finally found the perfect pink yarn! It was on sale. This is also the pattern that convinced me to invest in pom Pom makers. This hat was easy to make. It took me some time to get used to the bulky yarn but that is my fault alone.

The stuffed animal hammock in the background is a free pattern by Stitch11.

Mongolian Tundra Cowl

Sometimes I just walk by a yarn and inspiration happens! That happened the last time I poked my head in Michaels. They teamed up with my favorite designer Isaac Mizrahi to make a line of yarn!

IMG_1510-1.JPG

I went with the heavy duty Sutton inspired yarn. Used s little under four balls of it. Its warm and not scratchy at all! It can be worn several ways too. It’s just time time for the colder season. I literally finished it the day I could start to see my breath outside :/
