We have had our first snow here in Ottawa two days ago… It has still been mild and fortunately, the rain washed it all away quickly, but it was enough to make me decide to knit a little winter toque while waiting for the new family member.
In order to figure out a design, I looked at my yarn stash and the toques that I made last year… and almost immediately decided to make one to match Daddy’s grey and green snowflake toque. So here it is – I just finished it! 🙂
I could only fit a small part of the snowflake pattern into the newborn dimensions, but I think it still looks really nice. And of course, I had to scale Daddy’s massive pompom down quite a bit!
So little monster, we’re ready, please don’t make us wait too much longer! 😉
UPDATE (5 Nov 2016):
The toque has been worn for the first time yesterday! And I think it did a great job keeping a pair of tiny little ears nice and warm. 🙂 It was not a real winter day yet, but the wind was quite cool, and at least I now know that it fits and that we are ready for the real frost!
