Bernat Baby Sport for everything, assorted colors.
What was your inspiration?
This pattern came to me via Shifio's as a pattern tester. It was a unique experience in that I would have never thought to make such a cover. I love moses baskets; in fact, I love anything for babies. I knew whom to give it to right away. It will be put to good use.
What are you most proud of?
Though a bigger project than what I am accustomed to and nothing like I had ever made, the basket and hood covers and blanket are so pretty to look at. It's an heirloom item that will be enjoyed for a long time to come.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Give yourself plenty of time to make this. It is not for last-minute gifts. Use the hoops that I suggested for the hood cover. If not, the hood cover will not be appropriate for your hood. You can try to adapt it, of course.
