I didn't post last week, because we had company, but now I'm back, and I promise I'll have content other than new patterns soon. In the meantime, I've edited and republished this pattern, which I originally wrote several years ago.
Impish Delights as a baby sock and hat set inspired by the nursery rhyme Ride a Cockhorse, William Allingham's poem The Fairies (Up the Airy Mountain), my love of fairytales. The hat and socks work up quickly in DK weight yarn and should fit a 3-6 month old. The lace pattern on the cuffs and brim is a simple two row repeat, and on the socks, those cuffs help the socks stay on.
This set is a perfect baby shower gift, and would look adorable in just about any color. However, if baby is going to be about the right size in December, you can choose colors appropriate for one of Santa's elves as well.
