…..And One for a Prince


I have been putting the finishing touches to a hat and coat set for a baby boy due at the end of June. It certainly does help when you know the sex of the baby beforehand!


Knitted in a lovely powder blue with white trim, I decided to opt for  a size 6-9 months. Babies are given so many gifts in newborn size that some never get worn as  babies grow so fast.

I used the basic pattern for the little pink smock coat from last weeks post and modified it for a boy. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while so was delighted when presented with a perfect opportunity to see how it would work out. I basically made the body shorter and started the cabling at the hem.


The back is also cabled.


The cabling does give the coat more bulk so will be a warm knit for the Autumn and Winter months, would be ideal as a car or pram coat.

Made a bobble hat and some matching boots


So hopefully he will be protected against the elements and look quite stylish in the bargain!
