I have completed one hat and one blanket for the Compassionate Knitting Project KAL. I just finished casting off the blanket now. I used Plymouth Dreambaby DK for both items, double-stranded for the blanket. The hat is a simple garter stitch thingy, and the blanket is an almost-as-simple feather and fan thingy. I'm really proud of it. Them. But mostly the blanket.
For size reference, the hat is sitting on the big end of a normal size (large at the grocery store) egg.

Beautiful things!! I know, they are sooo tiny. I made a blanket and hat as well, and I almost didn't send in the hat, because I thought surely it could fit no one. Great job!!

I've just gotta have a basket full of eggs with little hats now!

Perfect for a knitter's Easter!

:roflhard: The egg does look adorable in that hat! You said the blanket was kind of simple, a fan and feather pattern right? Where can I find that pattern?? I might want to make it for a baby shower gift :inlove:

Both beautifully done.



Finally, a good use for an egg.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments, everyone! :heart:

KnitPixie, here's the feather and fan pattern. I believe it needs to be done on a multiple of 12 sts - I used 60. Add stitches for a selvedge as you deem necessary.
Row 1 - Knit across.
Row 2 - Purl across.
Row 3 - (k2tog) twice, (yo, k1) four times, (k2tog) twice. Repeat across row.
Row 4 - Knit across.

I was totally inspired by your gorgeous little blanket ... I attempted this pattern a few times today but I couldn't figure out the right number to cast-on which accounted for the selvage as well as the f+f repeats. I started feeling reeeeaaally dumb after the fifth time I botched it and gave up and started a basketweave blanket. I would like to give this one another go though after I finish the basketweave. You said you CO 60sts, how many sts did you use on each side for salvage?
