Octocowl, again

Another Octocowl in the making for my boy! I absolutely love the green one I made for him a while back – it’s awesome to just pull on when it’s cold. (Especially since he doesn’t like to zip up his jacket too high.)

This time using his favourite color red; Malabrigo Worsted, colorway Vermillion. I’ve already prepared some colorful tassles. Third time using this pattern – great design!

Toasty warm

Managed to make some good progress on this one when I had a rare couple of hours to myself. This is an older free Drops pattern, here working on the back piece. I’m using Malabrigo Mecha in colorway Polar Morn.

As usual I don’t like how Drops patterns are written, but I like the simple design of this vest and it should be a pretty fast project to finish. This will be perfect to keep them boobs warm this winter. 🙂

FO: Ear flap baby hat

Top down ear-flap hat, stickad i bambu/ull-mix Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo. Färgen heter fantastiskt nog Pip Squeak Purple. Storleken är lite fel – storlek nyfödd i rätt stickfasthet gav något mer närmare 3 månader. Kanske är den för kall då (december), vi får se 🙃

Top down ear-flap hat, made in bamboo & wool mix Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo. The color is awesomely named Pip Squeak Purple. Sizing is a bit off – working size Newborn at the right gauge gives something more like 3 months. Maybe it’ll be too cold by then (December), we’ll see 🙃

FO: Lilacs for Lila bonnet

Lilacs for Lila, gratismönster på bebismössa med vikt framkant. Här stickad med ett nystan Artesano Superwash Merino DK som har gömt sig i garnskåpet sedan jag gjorde min koftdesign Luftslott under 2013. 🙂
