BABY ESTER'S FLOWER HAT
by Luce Caterino
styled by Nana_Amma
I'm an Italian mom knitting for her 16 month little girl, but this hat and scarf has been knitted for my 6 month old niece.
1)less than 1 skein of superwash 100% white wool I bought together with a knitting book (sorry but don't remember the brand);
2)same quantity of rose acrylic stash I had (don't know since when);
4.00 mm Strait needles
4.00 mm crochet hook
For the white part just cast on 80 st and work in gather st. for at list 2 cm. than go on to the top in stockinette st. On the top with a wool needle and a piece of pink wool pass through all stitches letting them fall as you go. Then pull and knot tight. Then sew along the sides.
For the rose and the scarf ruffles I did crochet based on a 40 stitch chain, I hope I can edit this post to enter the scheme in pdf.
Because being Italian I don't know much about English crocheting terms.
It just took couple of hour for the width part, instead working on the rose I realized that acrylic is not good for crocheting because it doesn't flow easily.
Please forgive me for my English. Good knitting to everybody,
