  • Hi there

    As promised here is the last of my new Little Pickle Knits Spring beanies. I think this fun Little Ladybird beanie would be perfect for a little boy or girl. I have drawn the ladybirds so they crawl up and down and all around the beanie.

    Just like my other new Little Pickle Knits Spring beanies, this beanie has been knitted with Rowan Wool Cotton 4ply on a pair of single pointed 3.25mm (US3) needles.
    I used the colours: String, Rich, Inky and White.

    The little ladybird pictures are worked using Intarsia.

    You can find all four of my new Spring beanies here in WHAT'S NEW!

    Alternatively pop over to Loveknitting/Linda Whaley  where you will be able to purchase my knitting patterns along with the yarn you will need, via your mobile /tablet.

    Happy knitting!

    Hi there

    Last week I got an email from a lovely customer asking me how to adapt my very popular Classic Pixie Beanie into a preemie baby hat, as she wanted to knit some preemie beanies for her lovely little twin grandsons. I got back to her straight away with some ideas and she went ahead and made some little beanies for the boys. I haven't been able to stop thinking about her little grandsons since and so hope the hats fitted them.

    So.... I have been busy looking into preemie sizing, knitting lots of tiny beanies, and have just released my Preemie Classic Pixie Beanie pattern today.

    This knitting pattern has instructions to knit beanies for premature babies who are 1 - 1.5lbs, 2 - 3lbs, and 3 - 6lbs.

    These beanies are knitted in DK on a pair of 4mm needles, and as you can imagine are super quick to knit.  The beanies shown here are knitted in Rowan's beautifully soft Super Fine Merino Wool.

    Oh yes.... I almost forgot to say... this PDF pattern includes instructions to knit these beanies 'flat' on a pair of single pointed needles or 'in the round' on double pointed needles.

    Happy knitting!

    Hi there

    Just a quick little post as I thought you might like a sneaky peek at another of my new Little Pickle Knits Spring beanies. This baby girl beanie is called 'Little Rose'. This PDF knitting pattern will be available to purchase in WHAT'S NEW! on my website tomorrow!

    I decided to place a pretty cluster of roses to one side of this beanie and I am really happy with the effect. I hope you like it too.

    This baby hat has been knitted in Rowan's Wool Cotton 4ply. I chose 'Violet' as the main colour, 'Dark Lime' for the leaves, 'Flower' and 'Petal' for the roses.
    The little roses and leaves are knitted in Intarsia. 

    I so love being snuggled up on the sofa knitting on cold winter nights, but these new floral beanies are making me long or those warm days in late Spring and Summer when I can sit and knit in my garden amongst the flowers!

    Speak soon
