Here's a little hat and scarf and baby sweater that I made for my sister's baby.
First the hat and scarf, which is being sported by a candle.
The hat is just a 2x2 ribbed tube. Near the top, I used a yo/k2tog row to create eyelet holes. I then made an I-cord and threaded it through and tied it in a bow. The scarf is just a 2x2 ribbed scarf.
The sweater is the 5 Hour Baby Boy Sweater pattern.
The yarn I used is re-purposed yarn that I bought from a friend, so I don't know what it is exactly. I'm pretty sure it's Caron Simply Soft, though (worked at Michael's for a year in high school- I am well-rehearsed in big box yarn).
