Hungry Caterpillar Baby Cocoon and Hat
Finally....a knitting project that I can write about!
Like many knitters, the majority of my knitting projects at this time of year are all about gift-giving. This adorable little project was a gift too.....to my niece and her husband at their baby shower last weekend.
I have to thank my knitting buddy Deb for introducing me to this pattern, and I stole her idea of gifting it with the book and caterpillar toy :-) Perfect!
This is a quick and easy project using Vickie Howell's line of yarn, Sheepish. So soft and squishy, perfect for snuggling a new baby.
The only "fiddly" part of this pattern is attaching the eyes. The patterns suggests hot glue(!), but I chose to stitch the green part to the felt base using my sewing machine and invisible thread. Then I hand stitched that to the hat, and hand stitched the yellow rims, along with the antennae. Not hard to do, just took a little time. Too cute!
