Inspired by Victorian night caps, Paper Dolls is a sweet hat for little babies who sleep a lot!
Knitted in the round on circular needles and finished on DPNS it features some stranded colour work and shaping to produce a hat which always falls to the same side.
Charts are provided for two variations of the colour work ; little men and little women ;-)
Work 26st and 32 rows in st st to measure 10x10cm/4x4in using 3.5
mm needles, or needle size required to obtain tension.
I am a published designer and teacher. Through The Knitting Class by Pauline Gallagher, I design patterns for hand knitting which have been published by Knit magazine. I also teach knitting and hand sewing classes and workshops to both adults and children. I live in Dublin near the sea which is one of my strongest influences.
