A good friend just had a beautiful baby girl! The baby is the newest addition to our "POD" (this is what we call our Monday night dinner club). So I thought she could use an outfit to help welcome her to the group... get it? Pea pod?
I found the pattern for the pod at Ruby Knits... I knew it was perfect the moment I saw it!
I used a different pattern for the hat than she did. I just wanted a simple roll top hat. I adapted a patter from Knitting on the Net
- Lion Brand Yarn – Hometown USA – Oklahoma City Green (Or any super bulky weight yarn)
- Size 15 circular needle, set of large double pointed needles
- yarn needle
Cast on 30 stitches
Switch to circular needles and put a marker after the last stKnit in St st (knit every rnd) for 6" (I ended up purling all the sts because they ended up backwards on the circular needles)
Round 1: k6, k2tog; rep around
Round 2: knit
Round 3: k5, k2tog; rep around
Round 4: knit
Round 5: k4, k2tog; rep around
Round 6: knit
Round 7: k3, k2tog; rep around
Round 8: knit
K2tog around until 3 sts remain.
Work I-Cord for 2 to 3 inches.
Draw yarn through the 3 sts on needle and pull through center of stem.
*The whole outfit turned out a little bigger than I had planned... I bet she'll be able to wear it around 3 months or so. You might want to adjust the pattern if you'd like it smaller!
Thanks for stopping by!
