Tiny quick things - FO

Sometimes all the knits in your knitting basket, even the easy ones, just seem to take too much brain power.  I know I should be finishing the sleeves of my jumper but I need to count every round for that, heaven forbid.  I wanted something truly mindless but also something quick, I needed a bit of instant gratification.

Say hello to the Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat it's as easy peasy as the name suggests.  I did a stash dive for some sock leftovers (I have plenty of those!) and found some lovely Claudia Handpainted Fingering left from my Lime Cookies (who said babies must always be in boring pastels!)  Once the yarn was picked and cast on it was quick (though I didn't do it that quickly really, mostly I kept picking up and putting it down) and super simple.  A perfect quick knit should you need a last minute baby gift.


I knit the pattern as written but used a 3.25mm needle instead of a 3mm as I knit tightly and was hopeful there'd be a newborn it would actually fit!  It does rather need a quick bath to even up the stitches but hey ho, this picture will have to do.  As you can see I'm still without my proper camera and am using my mobile phone.  I must have another hunt for that charger cable.

If you want more details on the hat (though really there aren't any I don't think!) my project page on Ravelry is here.

Now I really must finish those sleeves...


  1. I love when people make baby knits in non pastel colours :) That hat is really cute too

  2. I love i cords on baby hats, so cute!

  3. I just sent this pattern to a friend who is ready to try knitting something that's not a square...I'm glad to hear it really is easy!
