baby Ella

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:

And on the magical little person herself:

I mean, look at that face!!!  I should be paying that girl to model for me :-)
