One of my very close friends recently had her first son! Allahumma barik feeha. Ameen :)
Sooo, of course I was going to make something for her and her son. I had some gray yarn on hand which, incidentally, I was planning on using to make a sweater for my nephew. Instead, I was able to make my friend’s son a sweater and a hat along with a matching hat combo for my brother and his son! Alhamdulilah the yarn came in good use.
This is a basic crochet sweater pattern that I added front post/backpost double crochet to. (It was either double crochet, or half double, I can’t remember now.)
Close up of the border. I think this added a bit of sophistication to the otherwise simple sweater. My mom really liked it too. :)
I also knitted a stretchy 2×2 rib hat for her son. I casted on 48 stitches I believe.
I also made this hat via loom knitting. To make sure it was extra warm, I doubled the whole hat and then binded off on top. This was made with velvet yarn, so it was pretty soft.
I’ve always found mommy and me hats adorable. My friend’s favorite color is green so I bought this caron’s simply soft yarn to make a hat for her.
I also made two vests for her son as well, one which I posted a pattern for, and the other I will post at a later time inshaAllah.
Overall, my friend appreciated the gifts a lot and was so happy. Alhamdulilah :)
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!
