Several months ago my friend Jen posted a picture on the Leisure Arts Blog of the Red Berries Hat that she knit from the Leisure Arts Book Snowy Day Sets to Knit.
I immediately downloaded the ebook. Summer came and went and last weekend, I took a good look at the patterns in the book. I have several favorites marked. What really surprised me was that the patterns are written in Toddler and Child sizes along with the adult sizes. All the photos that I originally looked at were adults. There's also mittens to match the hats. Again, Toddler and Child size too. To complete a great find, the patterns are written in 2 versions, 2 needle with a seam and 4 needle in the round.
I had a little more than one skein left from my Sideways cardigan, so I decided to use the Lion Brand Baby Wool that was left to make a toddler size hat.
I chose the Winter Sunshine Set. It is a simple hat with slip stitch detail that gives it a special touch.
I'm going to be using this book a lot this season. What a great way to make some winter children's sets for Winter.
