We have run into a bit of a problem. The weather has turned cold–real cold, and Sis doesn’t seem to think she needs anything on her bald head, or tiny feet.
I beg to differ.
I would say we are at an impasse, but I AM THE PARENT.
So I came up with a solution – a crochet baby hooded cowl.
She is a little fox and can still get this hooded cowl off when she is undisturbed in her carseat for long period of time, however, it DOES stay on her head most of the time particularly during the dash from our warm house to the warm car. It has been a welcome solution!
Isn’t the grit stitch so lovely? That beautiful texture is created by working a sc and dc in the same stitch, then skipping the next stitch to keep the count consistent. I absolutely love this stitch! The silky yarn is perfect for this crochet baby hooded cowl, too. Mighty Stitch yarn works so well for baby items. It’s SO soft, and it’s an acrylic/wool blend, so I know she will be so cozy in her hooded cowl.
