butter bean

if you've not guessed, the theme of l'enfant ensemble is eyelets. a little while back, this chickadee had another knit commission and chose to use a pattern for a baby bonnet, sweater and booties from an eighties knitting book (you can see that finished project here). it was such fun to knit and seemed suited for this project as well.

this time, instead of the ribbon closure, one carefully chosen vintage button adorns the front of the cardigan. the ribbons weren't used for the booties either. it isn't pictured above but the yarn used the knit the project was twisted into cord and threaded through the eyelets to help keep the booties where they belong.

and, instead of following the bonnet pattern, this chickadee came up with her very own quick knit pattern for a rolled-brim, striped baby hat.

voila! one cozy and comfortable baby set complete.
