Red Riding Hood

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 2, 2009

I’m probably being bias but how cute is my baby in this poncho?? 🙂

Little Red Riding Hood

It was super easy and quick to make, which is great since I have had little time for knitting since our baby’s arrival. The pattern is also easy to read, unless I’ve been making too many Drops pattern that the lingo is getting easier to understand. I remember having a real hard time with the first Drops pattern I made.

Anyway, I added the pom-pom for extra cuteness. I thought it only appropriate for a baby’s hood to have a pom-pom. I also doubled the yarn for the tie string.

I made the smallest size. My baby is 2 months (10 pounds) and it fits her nicely. The hood is a bit large and will give her some room to grow into it. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Pattern: Garn Studio Drops baby pattern 16-1

Size made: 0-3 months

Yarn: Caron One Pound

Needle size: 11

    Love it! Would love to make one for my daughter, so what is the secret to reading drops patterns, cause I feel completely lost when I do!

  6. Absolutely adorable! I’m a new knitter, but really want to make one for my friend’s baby-to-be-born. I hope it’s not too complicated for my skills!
