FO Friday #12

Baby Wolf Snuggly

In a fit of flurry, last Sunday, I worked on a baby snuggly so that I could have it in time for a shower this weekend. It took less than a day to make. I loosely followed this pattern. I used some yarn on hand, stash busting!!! One skein of Tahki Bunny Print and a skein of Bee Soft Delight. And then when I ran out of Bunny, part of the Jiffy Quick yarn, used for Panache, that had a knot at the beginning, so I just cut it out. Here are the yarn photos, see if you can pick them out in the snuggly.

  

I used the Bee Soft and Bunny from the bottom to about 2/3 up. Then used the Bee Soft and Jiffy. Then the last bit that looks lighter was just Bee Soft. It has a ribbed pattern, but you can’t really tell.

As you can see in the first yarn photo, I still have Bee Soft left. This yarn was given to me by a friend. And free yarn can’t just sit there and not get used!! So, I bought two more skeins of yarn to use it up. That’s the logic my brain uses. What can I say, I’m smart that way!

I will be making some modifications to the next one. Instead of a pointy bottom I will increase to double the st count every 2-3 rows at the beginning. This will give the shape a more flat bottom. The 1st version I did had less point than the original pattern.

Progress was made on Shadow Shawl and Annis.

  1. There’s a lot of happy pink energy in your projects this week. The baby snuggly will be a lovely gift. (I wonder why I didn’t knit when my kids were little enough for all the adorable baby/toddler items?)

  2. The snuggly is cute. Is there a high demand for those? I don’t really see them around but if people want them I’ll definitely oblige. 🙂

    I am loving both of your shawls. I can’t wait to see them blocked and finished!

    1. I don’t know about demand, but if I had one when my girls were babes I definitely would have used it. The receiving blankets would never stayed tucked, but then I guess they were just movers!!!

  3. I like the snuggly … and I definitely like your future mod – the more square bottom is great for, as you say, “those movers,” which I think are most babies, no? 🙂

  4. I’d not thought of mixing different textures of wool before. Colours, but not textures. I love how it turned out. Very cuddly. Just perfect for a little one.
