Do you remember the Sprout?
Matching baby cocoon / snugglesack and little hat. In the picture above, it’s knitted in James C Brett Woodlander self-patterning yarn, which you can find here.
Do you also remember the Luscious Long Socks?
These were knitted in Cascade 220 and, more importantly, Lang Yarns Tosca Light – that gorgeous self-striping stuff… (find it here).
The socks only used 40g of the 100g ball, so I thought I’d make another Sprout with the rest. And look!
I completely love it.
What do you think?
With this impending arrival in mind, and born out of a sense of immense gratitude to her, I give you “Sprout”. A snuggly baby cocoon and matching hat.
There is a truly lovely lady I know.
She has been a gentle source of solid support for me and my family for the past almost half-decade. Her compassion and empathy are, amongst us at the very least, legendary.
And in a matter of a few short weeks, she’ll be bringing her first little being into the world. She will make one of the loveliest mummies I think anyone could possibly imagine. What a lucky little sprout ❤
With him in mind, and born out of a sense of immense gratitude to her, I give you “Sprout”. A snuggly baby cocoon and matching hat.
Knitted on 3.5mm and 5mm circular needles, using James C Brett Woodlander DK yarn, you can find the pattern here if you fancy a go at knitting one for a teeny person in your life.
And happy knitting! 🙂
