Handspun Baby Set


Several weeks back I knit up this quick little set for our new baby out of a gorgeous skein of Becoming Art Handspun yarn that has been waiting patiently in the stash for some time now.


The hat was knit from the pattern Quynn from the book Bambeanies. I love this design! Not only is it fun and quick, but I love how the ear flaps are constructed! Although I love the look of them, I've never been fond of knitting ear flaps onto hats.. until now.

These ear flaps are created as you knit through increases and decreases.. no picking up stitches... so nice!
This is a seriously adorable hat that I will be making again!

Along with the hat, I knit up some quick matching baby mitts out of another fabulous children's knitting book, 60 Quick Baby Knits. This book has tons of great practical baby patterns all knit from Cascade 220 yarn.. the perfect worsted weight. 

There is a sweater in there that I am dying to knit for our little one... eventually...



I can't wait to see our little guy in this handspun set!

Love it! Perfect for Fall. I'm a big fan of Becoming Art yarn also. In fact, in my hands I am knitting up your Cosette Wrap in BA's Agave sport in Huckleberry and Pristinely Ungifted.
