There’s something about new babies that seems to get people knitting. Maybe the tiny size makes a project seem achievable, or maybe little ones just bring out the granny in us all. Certainly, knitting hats is always my quick and easy go-to baby gift. This works great, provided people have the good sense to have their babies in the winter. Come June, covering a little head in merino doesn’t seem such a great idea. So, inspired by this beautiful book (which is worth putting on your wish list right now) I attempted something a little more seasonal for my friend’s little chick. This bird doesn’t look quite delicate enough to fly, but the sentiment is there. Knitting hats is definitely easier.
