Choc Cherry baby

Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed the appearance of Choc-Choc-Cherry items on my FOs list recently. Here is the complete set:

And here's the hat being modelled:

The choc-choc-cherry bamboo/merino mix yarn I used is available from

Both items were made using free patterns available on the Internet. The jacket is the Stripey scrappy socky cardigan by f.pea, specifically designed for sock yarn, but I knitted it without the stripes, obviously. I also made the garter stitch section slightly longer than specified, and the button bands 2 rows wider each side, so I could add two buttonholes using the yarnover method, rather than using button loops.

The hat is a baby ruffle hat (knit) from Bernat - you have to log in to obtain the pattern, but sign-up is free. This one was supposed to be knit in dk, so I had to adjust the pattern slightly for gauge.


  1. The hat is gorgeous (as is the baby) She looks like Victoria Plum.
    The colours work really well together.
    Well done.

  2. Very sweet! And I just want to give that little model a squeeze!
