This hat was just a quick project in between. I love how the little hat turned out, I think the stripes look great in garter. Mandala is such an amazingly beautiful colourway, I really knit more with it. The hat turned out really small, even though I knit the toddler size, so I think it will fit a newborn.

Right now there aren't any new babies around, but Antonia's teacher is expecting one in the fall ;-), so this might be the perfect present then.

I still had more yarn left over (the original project for this yarn was my Winter Forest Hat) so I added a pair of Little Squirrel Socks to the combo. I sure love to use up yarn like that ;-)


  1. You always pick such beautiful colours in your knits. This will make a lovely gift.

    1. thank you! This is one of the most beautiful colourways I've ever knit with. There are so many colours but they all harmonize together.

  2. So adorable! The colors are amazing, I agree with Christine - your feeling for color is exquisite!

    1. Thank you, Mandala is an amazing colourway!
