I LOVES a baby, me!
Some very close old friends of ours had a new smalls a few weeks ago. Mmmmmm, sniff his baby head – I can’t get enough of the wee chap!
Here are some pics of a mobile I made to go in his room. We had helped paint the walls of the nursery with clouds, so it seemed very fitting to have something like this for his mobile. I started making the raindrops in all different rainbow colours. Then as soon as he was born and we knew he was a little man, that didn’t seem quite right and I worried that it may end up looking a bit too girly. I ended up sticking with just blues and purple, which I think was the right decision.
It was fun working out the knitting pattern for the droplets (only very simple, but quite enough cerebral effort for my tiny mind).
I have listed the instructions for how to make them below.
Here’s how to knit a raindrop:
Yarn: DK scraps
Needles: 4mm DPNs
Row 14: [k2tog, k1] to end (9)
Let me know how you get on if you decide to have a go 😀
