Pattern Info
Hat
Design E – Beret by Sirdar Spinning Ltd.
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter DK 1930

Mitts
Tommy No-Thumb by A Jackson
Ravelry

The hat pattern is the same as the one I made for Sprout in 2014. I made the 0-6 month size this time. I hope it will fit when it gets a little cooler. I have not knit the mitts before, but they look about the right size for a newborn.

Yarn Info
Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby Fair Isle Effect DK
55% nylon, 45% acrylic
0.64 skeins = 114.6 yds used

This set took the last of this yarn. I did have about 8 grams left, but it’s not even enough for newborn socks (I tried). This is the same yarn from Sprout’s cardigan and matching hat.
