garter stripes.

My new obsession: this baby hat by Purl Bee. 

I did a few slight modifications for this hat, which will be gifted to a friend and future child. I’m in love with how fun these can get. This was knit up using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in the thyme colorway for the contrasting stripe and Malabrigo Merino worsted in natural for the main color.

The original pattern is solid, but I found inspiration in a few striped ones at Ravelry. And instead of a little tassel at the top, I opted for a tiny pom in Malabrigo Merino worsted in golden ochre. Brilliant.

I’m going to make one in white, black, and red, too. The ideas, they swirl. The babies, they will be warm, this winter. For this hat, I plan on making these little baby socks in the thyme color to match.
