Just In Case - A Spare

I'm doing a hat for my grand daughter Elliotte and I'm a little confused on sizing. She's 18 months old but is big for her age, after all she was over 10 pounds at birth. The fact that she's not around for fittings doesn't help the situation much either.

I found a bowl that seems to be the right size. I knit one hat and when I finished it it looked too small. I used Bernat Soy which I will now say I will never use again. It splits like crazy and doesn't stretch a lot. I just simply don't like it.

Just In Case

So back to my trusted Patons Classic Wool for the second hat.

The Spare

One of these two hats will fit, I'll have to wait until Christmas to find out which one.

There will be ear flaps added when I get around to it, meanwhile I've cast on another pair of socks...

Little ones always have such surprisingly large heads. They're both adorable.

what a lucky little girl she is to have a grandmother like you! Love the hats, the cable pattern is beautiful!
Many of the hats that I knit Kailey last year when she was 1 still fit her little noggin now that she's 22m.

I like the pattern a lot. Neither one looks like it would not fit over her ears, which was a problem I had when trying my first baby hat. My first time visiting you, and wanted to say Thanks for visiting me!
