Knitted Baby Capris, Kitten Hat, and Bonnet

Now, before you start wondering why I’m knitting baby items, let me just tell you that Chicky has a friend from high school who recently started her own photography business.  She asked me to knit up a few baby items to photograph her clients in.  She showed me a picture of something she wanted to use in her studio, and together we selected a couple of patterns that fit the bill.

We met at Hobby Lobby, and I gave her a crash course on yarns…especially their weight.

She purchased a few skeins, and off I went.

Here’s what I made. Specific pattern notes can be found on my Ravelry project pages.

First off is a pair of newborn capris and kitten hat to match.

The pattern can be purchased here.

This is the kitten hat that I made. The pattern was included with the one for the capris (which also had instructions for making shorts, capris, long pants, and longer pants)…

Amber, my daughter’s friend, wanted a second pair of capris from a different skein of yarn.

I purled the last row of the legs and bound off purlwise as suggested in the pattern (I didn’t do this with the first pair). I like the results much better!

I bought the designer’s pattern for a newborn baby bonnet. Amber wanted tassels, and this pattern had them.

Both brands of yarn were FABULOUS to work with!

The pattern designer was also a gem and got back with me quickly when I sent her a question.

These were super fast knits, with the patterns so easy to follow!  I highly recommend this designer!

It was fun to knit up these small items, and I can’t wait to see pictures of Amber’s clients all dressed up in the finery that came off of my needles!
