Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Saturday 31 October 2015

On and off my Needles.....

It’s more off than on. I was going to write this post and show these earlier, before the hat was finished. But I was on a roll and decided to keep on going. Both of these patterns came from ravelry. The booties are the result of a search for a pattern for booties that would stay on a baby’s foot. The pattern Hodge is a free download. It’s a very quick and easy knit using left over sock yarn, of which I have an abundance. The hat is also a free ravelry download called Newborn Baby’s Striped Hat. The design called for yarn colour changes. But since I have an abundance of leftover self striping sock yarn, that’s what I used. I think there will be a pair of little mitts to go with these, just for a little bit more fun.This is actually the second hat I’ve finished in the last couple of weeks. The first one is made out of the same hat pattern. It has a pair of tiny mitts to go with it. I didn’t have enough of this yarn left to do the booties, as well. Little Abrielle will be all warm and cozy when she gets here in January. I’m a day late, but I’ll still link up to Judy’s On the Needles.


  1. Adorable knits! Thanks for the links for the patterns.

  2. I knit a very similar stay on bootie for baby gifts. I gave a friend 2 pairs for her boy and they are on the 3rd kid and she recently told me they are still a favorite baby item (I have added more to the collection). It is nice to have the lacy design for girls now. Thanks for the link@

  3. Your hats and mittens are so cute. Wish I had more leftover sock yarns to try these. My feet are big and I like my leg section taller than most, so I don't have very much leftover for anything like that. It might work with several leftover skeins put together though. lol


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
