My daughter's vocal teacher is due to have a baby any day. What knitter doesn't jump at the chance to make cute baby gifts?
I decided that for a baby Thorpe
a pointy, elfish top would be just right. To do this I skipped two rounds between the increase rounds in the original instructions. I also stopped increasing when I got to 64 stitches which seemed about right for this yarn (Rowan 4ply soft, two strands held together).
I made two, because baby Thorpes are like chips and m&m's, you can't stop at just one. The second one is in handspun. Since the yarn was heavier I only increased to 56 stitches.
It has since been given a pompom & braids, but I'm too lazy to set up another photoshoot right now. Maybe there will be modeled baby photos soon.
In other news, I am thrilled to announce that the Loopy Ewe
is now carrying hard copies of my patterns! It was an honor to have Sheri contact me and ask to sell them. Her shop has such an amazing selection of yarns, patterns, rovings and all manner of knitting goodies.
