Every time my oldest son sees me sewing or knitting anything, he oohs and aahs, takes hold of my arm, and in the sweetest voice ever, asks if I can make one for him, too. It doesn’t matter what I’m working on – blanket, baby booties, bags – he wants one just for him.
So when he saw me working on my giveaway scarfette, it wasn’t long before he decided he needed a new scarf too. Oh, and a hat to match, too, “peese Mama. Tank you”.
He chose a multi-coloured acrylic from my stash (my kids don’t enjoy wool for some reason), and I got to work. Of course, despite coming from a long line of speed knitters, I’m a bit on the slow side, so it’s taken me two weeks of knitting a row or two at a time to make this little set.
No patterns for these: the scarf is a simple k2 p2 rib and I just knit the hat in the round until it was big enough to fit my son’s head and then decreased by a stitch every fourth stitch.
No model shots. He loves his new hat and scarf, just apparently not on demand!
