Ailsa Baby Hat


Knitting is basically all about how you use knit and purl stitches. I love playing around and making new combinations.
It keeps me interested in my craft. Sometimes I pull it back - sometimes I like the way it looks!
 
Hope you enjoy trying out this one!

  3. Just finished it in bright blue Yarn Bee Soft Secret. Came out lovely, did a stretchy cast on...very intricate looking but manageable stitches. Thank you for the lovely motif.
