Mateo’s Mamma (Erin) knit a sweater for him and he needed a hat and booties to go with it.
I think this is the sweetest baby hat and love the vintage look…
LOVE this pattern.
Yarn is Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca DK.
Size 5 needle.
His booties are simple, classic booties from the Pom-Pom Booties pattern in Vintage Knits for Modern Babies by Hadley Fierlinger. (Ravelry Link)
Size 4 needles.
Pattern is adorable, but beware of editing errors in the directions.
MOD… I made the cuff in a K1P1 rib and made it longer so it can be folded down.
The ties are a crochet chain instead of a twist and I omitted the poms.
Here Teo is modeling the sweater his mamma, Erin, knit for him before he was born.
