While this pod and matching hat was originally created by myself as a photography prop, more and more people are using it for day to day use with babies. In addition to providing a swaddling effect for babies, they look so cute in these pods. The patterns have been written in a straight forward manner -- as long as you know how to knit with circular needles you will be successful in knitting this set. Best yet, the colour combinations for this set are endless! While the pattern calls for 3 colours, it is easy to adapt this to add even more -- you could even make a rainbow pod!

In addition to being a mother of two and a supply teacher, I am also an avid knitter. It is very rare that I will go more than a day without knitting something! On those days you will probably find me spinning yarn instead :) When writing each pattern, my goal has been to write it so that it is easy for even the most beginner of knitter to follow. If you ever have problems with a pattern or need some clarification on a step, you can reach me by email for assistance ( I strive to respond to all emails in under 12 hours.
