Blocked & Modeled.


I found an ADORABLE model for the baby cap. This is Ovid. My friend Lindsey's son. I'm watching him today while she is at work and I'm in love with him. He is the sweetest!

The cap is a bit small for him but does the trick better than the previous pictures.... non-blocked hat stuffed with tissue paper. hee hee. (It's amazing what a good blocking did for this hat... especially the brim!)

I'm going to test knit a larger size. Something that would fit a child Ovid's age. The yarn will be worsted instead of fingering and the brim of the hat will be wider for the larger size. I'll post pictures of that version next week and hopefully by then the pattern will be done as well.

Rachel - this is SO ridiculously cute! I was just thinking that my boys need to wear "caps" this fall/winter, but I have no patience for knitting, and thought I'd sew some instead. You're so talented...I love seeing what you create!
