I wanted Bunny to have a headband to match her wool soakers. Since I now know how to use circular, double pointed needles, I just knit a circle for the band. I used the same pattern used for the ruffles on her chartreuse soaker to make the rose, and I used increasing and decreasing stitches to make the leaf. It wasn't that hard to figure out once I knew the stitches, which I learned from my dear friend while making the soaker.
She's such a pretty little baby model!
I made another soaker with the same pattern as my chartreuse one and adjusted the legs so they were roomier. Then, instead of ruffles, I added hearts with a chain stitch (I found a tutorial for it online. I know how to do it in embroidery, but I wasn't sure how to do embroidery on knit. It also wasn't hard!)
Man, she's so beautiful!
This is a third soaker I made with a completely different pattern. It was much easier, but I didn't ask for help finishing it, so I think there's a better (well, prettier) way to do it. Basically, it's a triangle. You bring up the bottom and attach it to the top and sides. It's roomy and works very well for prefolds pinned or snappi-ed together.
I put the tie in the back because she's at the stage where she'd pull it out if it were in the front.
I can't wait to make my next one! My back went out (this happens once every 1-2 years) so knitting is a way to keep busy while flat on my back. Well, I'm not always flat on my back, since I have to take care of Bunny despite how I feel. If you think of it, please pray for me. I feel like half a person/mom because i'm unable to do my house chores appropriately and unable to take care of my baby like I want to. But God is good. He will heal me. He always has.
