I have made a lot of booties and hats for my girls and as gifts and this is my favorite set by far! I love a hat low on the forehead and think this pretty scallop trim and flower and perfect for my baby girl. It makes her eyes look so huge.
I also love the little vamp on this bootie--the edging looks almost like eyelet and yet it's nothing fancy. Tiny pearlized buttons work just right and seem to keep the strap closed--miracle!
I used some Lion Brand Cotton Ease yarn I had in my stash. It is years old--not sure they make this pretty pale pink anymore. I had it from a project I started on a transatlantic flight while in the first trimester of my first pregnancy--found myself too sick to work on it on the flight and really couldn't stand the sight of it afterwards! Finally, the yarn has been redeemed.
I created the patterns for these based on some other patterns. I would love to do another set in white (perhaps with a trio of three smaller flowers?) and need to write down what I did so I have it for the future... Good for gifts too since this worsted weight yarn works up quickly.
