And the third one is bigger than the first two!
See for yourself:
OK, I suppose you really can’t see that it’s bigger than the others, as they’re not in the shot for comparison. My bad! Anyhoo, I worked it over 60 stitches (rather than 56, as I did on the others), which is why you see 3×3 ribbing (rather than the 2×2 ribbing on the others). I also knit for 5 inches from the bottom edge before starting the decreases (rather than 4 inches, as on the others).
I decreased down to 6 stitches for the nipple point, ’cause I like the tighter tip that results. (Full knitting details are in the FO 34 page for 2012.)
Here’s how the hat looks in its full, upright position:
This one is intended for Billy, my cousin Sarah’s newest addition to the family. He was born last week and is a little blonde darling! I’ll have a package of several handknits for him, including the boobie beanie. I want to make him a pair of booties in the next couple of days, so I can get them to his mom before he outgrows them. Pictures of the entire package will follow, once I have the booties in the mix.
I admit that making these boobie hats is addictive, but I am not obsessed. I can stop anytime I want. (I can so! Hush over there! And stop snickering!) To prove it, I’m going to knit those baby booties before I cast on the next boobie hat. Watch for an update that proves it in the next couple of days.
