Recently finished project! Started and finished on a few of the rainy nights in Melbourne recently.
Can't remember the title of the book I got the pattern from - something like "One Skein of Yarn". So one skein of yarn made two little beanies - one for a newborn and one to grow into. The 'umbrella' pattern around the edges was definitely better looking the second time around (see top bigger one). I didn't mind. A newborn ain't gonna notice a bunch of missed stitches!
