Yesterday, I made a little cap in crochet as a test for the designer, it’s a really quick project, it took me about 2 1/2 hours to make. The pattern can be found here. I made it in a 100% cotton yarn.
Here it is, modeled by my 4-year old – he enjoyed the photo shoot 😉
Today, I finally had a decent photo shoot for this pattern. Thanks to two lovely children, Marta and Kelvin, who played along and let me take lots of pictures of them wearing the hats.
Here are our best shots, aren’t they cute?!
Pattern can be found here and costs EUR 2.50
I wrote this pattern especially with bamboo yarn in mind. I wanted to design a spring hat with a girl and a boy version and bamboo yarn makes me think of spring. It has a lovely shine to it that reminds me of sunny spring days.
The body of the hat is identical in both versions. The girl version includes a little bracelet, just for fun!
Note: this pattern is for both boy and girl versions
Pattern costs $3.75
Knitting in the round, Kfb, picking up stitches, Kitchener stitch

My testers are hard at work and, thanks to them, I should be able to publish the pattern very soon, I’m hoping before the week-end. Here are some of their versions, the boy version is not finished yet:
I have just posted a request for testing for this model. If you are interested, please check here and use the thread to reply.
This means that the pattern should be published around 10th February. Stay tuned for more information!
Modeled by my 6-year old. The hat is meant for a size 2-5 years approximately, so it’s a little small on him. But, it gives you a good idea of what it looks like.
I will now write the pattern for both this version and the girls version and will get it test knitted. The pattern should be available in about 3 weeks time. Stay tuned!
Only one element left to knit on my boys’ version of the upcoming bamboo spring beanie pattern. Here is a preview:
Note that it is a little bit small on my boys, there will be a bigger version for older boys.
