Today marks the kick-off for February’s BOBBOL 2013 Knit-A-Long!
For February we are getting back to doing lace by making the Seemingly Seamless 2-Needle Preemie Hat. This project is the first in BOBBOL 2013 to expand our scope of Bits of Lace beyond edgings into other types of small lace projects.
The Seemingly Seamless 2-Needle Preemie Hat is simply knit flat back and forth on 2 needles in a herringbone lace and ribbed pattern stitch. What is clever is the seemingly seamless seam that turns this flat knitting into a circular hat. This pattern reveals the secret that makes this work. Your knitting friends won’t believe you didn’t knit this hat in-the-round!
Note: Seemingly Seamless 2-Needle Preemie Hat is sized for premature babies, but you can easily upsize it for larger newborns and older babies by adding pattern repeats or making with thicker yarn on larger size needles.
Get on over to the Free Member Pattern area now to get started with us making the Seemingly Seamless 2-Needle Preemie Hat.
p.s. The pattern for the Preemie Hat will be free to members only during February 2013. There will NOT be a pdf download available during February. Instead, the pattern will be posted in pieces and available on special member-only content pages at this website.
