Purple Flower Hat

When there’s a new baby being fussed over and showered with gifts, older siblings can get left out. When I delivered the Teddy Bear Baby Hoodie for my friend’s new baby boy I wanted to take something for his big sister. I didn’t have much time to come up with something but I made this flower hat on the knitting loom and it didn’t take long at all.

I used three strands of DK yarn, each in a different colour (purple, magenta and lilac).

When I finished it is felt there was something missing.

I crocheted a flower and sewed it on. Much better!

It was lovely to see the children and their mum this morning when I took their presents over. We sat in the garden and had coffee. What a nice way to spend a morning!

What do you make when you need a last minute gift?
