I knitted this toddler romper/trousers in Pickles exrta fine merino it has he most amazing deep eggplant purple. The pattern is from Sandnes garn hefte Baby 1415, the design is by Liv Stangeland. I have something of an obsession with knitting baby clothes at the moment there is no reason behind it but there incredibly cute and you can choose and an allover pattern without being stuck with it for a lifetime.
I wish it where possible to subscribe to Sandnes hefter, there pattern booklets and altho I don’t knit all the patterns I look at them for hours and hours for inspiration, wouldn’t it be nice to come home and find the new issue of amazing inspiration once a month. But they don’t come on a regular schedule nor have subscriptions since it not a magazine just pattern booklets from a yarn company.
This is flettet lue by tiddelibom a other norwegian designer. The hat is knitted in Pickles extra fine merino Den lysblå timmen, I think this is my favorite yarn, it is plain non super-wash comes in a ton of colours and works well for all sorts of stitches and has grate stitch definition. It is the perfect basic yarn that I comes back to time and time agin.
I recently made this set in Pickles Extra fin merino in the colourway Gresskar for an almost 2 year old relative and now that it’s arrived I can show it to you. I used Bon bon toque pattern for the hat and Heartwarmer for the cowl, both patterns are modified to fit the yarn since the patterns was intended for a larger gauge then preferable for this yarn and I think it tuned out all right. If I wear to make heartwarmer agin however I would change the seed-stitch for twisted ribbing which I think makes a neater edging.
