more tiny knits

Baby booties and hats, oh my! I knit up my recent stash addition, one skein of Filatura di Crosa Zarina. These are inspired by the stay-on booties pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stay-on-baby-booties-archive), which is no longer available online but has been posted on various Ravelry project pages and within the comments. Very unusual construction, and all garter stitch (my current favorite, it seems!). Definitely a fun, fast knit!
For the hat, I cast on 70 stitches and knit in garter stitch for 4.5 inches before decreasing for the crown. I was hoping to knit something small enough that the little bambino could wear in the hospital, but I have a feeling this will still be too big. We'll see ...

  1. I love how simple and elegant the garter stitch looks. Perfect for a new little one!

    1. Thanks! I'll have to report back as to whether they really stay on! :)

  2. Oh this reminds me that I have some baby booties and hats to make for a friend. I'll have to find something lightweight since she's due in July. I like the delicate colors in the yarn you used!
