Last Thursday I finished the Hungry Caterpillar Baby Cocoon and Hat. Ready?
Squeeeee! Is that not the cutest hand knit ever? I mean, it slays me every time I look at it.
It was really simple and fast to knit, too. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in two shades of blue and two shades of green. The hat is made from some leftover Lamb’s Pride Bulky. In a total cheater move, I didn’t even weave in the ends. I mean, that’s a LOT of ends. And it’s only for a wee babe – it’s not like the ends are going to impact him at all. It was a teensy bit fiddly to make the antennae and eyes but not really and totally worth the pay off.
And speaking of the pay off – there should be a baby to put in that little cocoon very very soon. I can’t even imagine the cuteness we’ll have to endure then!
(Stay tuned for updates.)
