WIP Wednesdays

I’m finally getting the hang of using DPNs, so all of today’s WIPs were started (and finished soon) using DPNs.

Knit Baby Hat

White Basic Baby Hat

The basic baby hat has a simple K1, P1 ribbing followed by a stockinette stitch all the way to the crown.

Knit Baby Mittens

I’ve been testing out a few different patterns for baby mitts. The first is a seed stitch border with a no increase stockinette body. The second is a simple ribbed border with a no increase stockinette body. And the third is a moss stitch border with a 6 increase stockinette body.

Knit Baby Mitten Purple and White

I like the moss stitch border the most so I decided to try another mitten using two colours and that border. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this look yet. Yes, it does look good but it is painfully obvious on the other side where the purple yarn begins and where it ends. I will most definitely need more practice with changing colours using DPNs.

The purple baby blanket (I’m scared to admit), I forgot about for the better part of last week. I was too excited about FINALLY getting the hang of DPNs and not seeing ladders (loose stitches) in my work. But don’t worry, the novelty will soon wear off and I will be back to the baby blanket.

What’s on your needles?

Happy Knitting,
