(like my professionally stuffed beanie ready for photographing? I actually think it looks dicky but couldn't work out a better way to photograph it to prove I had in fact finished it completely)
Even sewed it up and weaved in the ends - something I usually leave for
Yes, it grew. How inconsiderate of it. It grew from being for a baby's head to at least a 3 year old (in my uneducated guess) and at a stretch should I wish to look like a crazed fashion victim it could even fit my head very very snuggly.
Serves me right for using cotton and not wool as the pattern specified. My knitting skills combined with my prego brain don't bode well for me adjusting the pattern to suit the cotton either so I don't suppose any of you can recommend a good pattern for a baby beanie using 4 ply cotton? I need another one of these babies off the needles within 2 weeks.
