Hang on, folks!
Technical difficulties with posting the pattern…..
I will fix it asap.
The blog software sent this out a day early.
Life is soooo fun sometimes!
AAANNNNDDDDD…it should all be fixed now! Please let me know if you have any troubles downloading the Vine Lace Baby Hat II. (link repeated just in case!)
Thanks for your patience!
Once upon a time there was an adorable tiny preemie who needed a baby hat, as do all new babies. I designed a pink lace confection for her, and called it the Vine Lace Baby Hat.
I put photos on my blog on Knitting Daily, and folks loved the wee hat! I wrote a pattern for it, but it was very basic, and Interweave asked me to write a “real” pattern for the magazine.
I knit this one in a heavy yarn, and it was modelled by the new baby son of an assistant editor (at left).
Soon, I began seeing these little hats all over the place, which made me happy.
A few years later, and I started getting emails that the pattern was no longer available, could we please have more sizes, that sort of thing.
Again, I completely re-did the pattern, find one major error in the middle of the lace pattern (apologies!). So, the new version had corrections, new photos, and new everything.
That new version is now up on Ravelry, Vine Lace Baby Hat II. Free, of course.
You can also download it here for free, clicking on the caption or the photo itself:
As usual, should you feel inspired to leave a token of your apprection, the Tip Jar is open 24/7.
Enjoy. Send me pictures if you make something really cute for someone really cute!
