Just before Christmas I finished this newborn winter set for our new arrival. We hope to see him in few weeks time.
Firstly, I knitted woolly socks. I made them simple without any cuff not to squeeze baby’s legs. Then I knitted mittens. We are expecting to have a baby-boy so, to be more boyish, I used double plaited cable on the front of them. And I used moss stitch for the palm sides.
When the mittens were finished, I started to knit a hat. Pattern for the cable stitch:
It was the hardest part to me, because I didn’t know the measurements of baby’s head. So, I measured one of my daughters first hats. The knitted pattern looked like letter ‘T’ up side down:
Next step was to knit the edge on the front of the hat, so I picked up stitches and knitted it. I had to do it three times until it looked good:
Then I sewed hat and knitted back side edge:
I hope all the knittings will fit perfectly.
