Sweet and Simple Swaddling Blanket


This baby blanket is also a handy wrap-up bunting with an attached hood, and sides that are secured by a bottom “flip-forward” pocket. When not being used as a bunting, the blanket can be used as a conventional flat baby blanket. It features a center back hole for easy car seat belt use (works well on most safety seats, but the 5-point harness systems that have the side leg straps are a bit more difficult to work the straps over the sides of the blanket). Written with detailed instructions in line-by-line format, suitable as a newer knitters project, while having enough detail to interest more experienced knitters as well.  

(Formerly published in the Winter 2003 issue of INKnitters Magazine)

Julia's Hat


A baby or toddler sized hat knit sideways, with fun popcorn edged cuff and top fringes knit on as you go! The only finishing is a final seam of cast on to bind off edges. (A provisional cast on may be used instead, and edges grafted, if a seamless hat is desired). Both sizes of hat use the same instructions, the size is determined by yarn and needle sizes.

Kate's Cape


A little girl’s cape with lots of room for movement and play, that is quick to knit using chunky brushed yarn that also gives lots of body and warmth. Worked top-down with easy shaping, and a simple decorative crochet scallop bind-off that gives extra-cute girl appeal. A standard bind-off may be substituted if desired.
