Oatmeal Marl Hat

Loving this new oatmeal marl yarn.  It is a wool mix so a little warmer than my other pom pom hats.  It has a lovely natural rustic look and is great for unisex baby gifts.  Thank you Linda Clarke Photography for the fabulous photo, what a gorgeous little girl!

Hat available for custom order at The Yarn Owls Nest.

Sunny Seaside Inspired Hat

A few lovely beach days have inspired the colourway for this newborn baby hat.  It is knitted in a lovely silvery grey and denim blue vegan yarn and the prototype was actually knitted up on the beach. It is for sale already up on The Yarn Owl's Nest Etsy Shop but if you would like a different size please contact me.

As for the beach, everyone loved it, and I am still finding sand around the house even after hoovering and sweeping!

Oatmeal Marl Rabbit Hat

My main knitted baby bunny hat season is over for another year but I couldn't wait to share this lovely image with you.  This hat is knitted with a stretchy ribbed edging which I think makes it look a bit more boy-ish, although the roll brims are unisex and have the advantage of making the hat fit slightly longer.  The yarn is a gorgeous wool mix chunky so it is also a bit warmer than the acrylic ones.

Thank you to Rachel Jefferies for the lovely newborn photo.
