13: Boys Sweater & Hat

Picture 151

My nephew Ralph was born back in 2010 and for the summer after his first birthday I made him a cotton sweater! I used 3 different colours of Cotton DK from the German chain of shops called Wolle Roedel.

He also got a warm woollen hat for Winter :)

I think I made this pattern up but I found a similar pattern here (using UK terminology):

Hat circumference (age 1-2 years): 17in (43cm) / Age 2-3 years): 19in (48cm)
