After finishing the Antler Cardigan and Hat set I thought it would be nice to make matching hats for some new little ones on the way and their big brothers. I really enjoyed working with the Malabrigo Rios yarn. Very squishy. I’ve certainly had a lot of fun with this pattern as well. For the last hat I used a knitted cast on from Wooly Wormhead that I found on Instagram. I liked it as much as the tubular cast on, and it seemed to be a bit more intuitive for me.
For Wesley and his soon to arrive little brother I made a blue set:
And for George and his new little brother I went with a fun multicolor yarn:
While the big brother hats may have been fun for me to knit, and I hope the expectant parents like the idea, I figured the new big brothers would like something more interesting as well. So I went to our local book store and picked out a couple of books for the boys! I’ve already wrapped them, but they were fun to read! I got Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed by Eileen Christelow and a Mo Willems book, Should I Share My Ice Cream?
