The Ella hat was big news for me this winter (purchased from etsy here). It’s a great pattern and, surprisingly to me but then who am I to judge?, two Ellas have been bought by men. For themselves. Young men, guys really, not big burly rugby player types. How cute is that!?
Anyway, when Nicola asked me to make two baby bonnets for her 6-month old niece in Durban, I thought I’d try the same pattern but using thinner yarn and a smaller hook.
Ta-da! Worked perfectly:
(pompoms still to be attached when I took these pics).
And on the magical little person herself:
I mean, look at that face!!! I should be paying that girl to model for me :-)
Back soon x
Oh Jill! You should get the rights to that photo and hang it in your booth so everyone can see how adorable the hats look on actual babies. Not that you would need any help with selling your amazing hats. ;) Love them and you. Tamara
excellent idea. I’m also thinking of purchasing the pattern you’ve recently been using for baby bonnets, there seems to be a trend these days :-)
Jill, you will definitely love making the bonnet. It is so quick and easy. I even love the flower and I’m picky with my flowers. :) Love and Hugs, Tamara
One cute baby! Hats look good too.
Love, love & love all of it!! And that babeh ~ what a little darling! I have a similar pattern I’ve been procrastinating to try…now I’m all inspired ~ smooches!
Just do it. Won’t even take long :-)
Great hat whatever the size!
Yes, one of my more successful pattern purchases. There have been a few most definitely not worth the money!!!
So cute. Free toys thrown in too. Bargain. ;)
Awwww Jill, that is adorable. Definitely a photo next to a large pile of baby sized hats…. Who could resist?
Actually, I think I could wear an Ella hat….. But I definitely wouldn’t look as adorable sadly!!
Go on! I’ll make you a purple one to match your sandals :-)
My face is still too squished up in a cuteness pout to type properly!!!!! Awwwwwwww
