Last week at Knit Night, our theme was strawberries. I'm not going to show you the crocheted strawberry dishcloth I made because I have that weird texture phobia and this dishcloth gave me the creeps -- I ripped it out as soon as I got home from class. (But, if you would be interested in the pattern, you can find it here at garn studios. This is a fantastic place for free patterns, and the cloth really does look like a basket of strawberries. Pay no attention to my weirdness.)
But just look at this cute knit strawberry hat! The pattern is here, by a designer whose name, I think, is Ulla -- this site is in Finnish -- thank goodness Google Chrome translates! If you need the pattern in English, I made it into a printable form for class, and would be glad to send you a copy.
The size is for a 1-2 year old girl, but since I don't have any of those around here, my adorable Small World doll, Eugenie, is a good model. I think I might make up a simple 2-rectangle poncho to go with this, using the same stitch pattern with a green border, and then give them to a 1-2 year old girl. Stay tuned.
This is a pattern I handed out at the first session in March -- a bunny based on a granny square designed by The Green Dragonfly from New Zealand. I worked this one up using kitchen cotton, but you could use any yarn. Very quick, very cute.
