The Duck Duck Goose, Lace Baby Hoodie, is named for the feather lace that wraps all around the body, arms, and head of this garment.
The lace stitch is simple enough for new knitters yet interesting enough for the accomplished. 380 metres of heavy double knitting or an Aran/worsted weight yarn will make the garment as shown. When substituting yarns, consider the weight to length ratio of your chosen wool and if in doubt, consider metres before grams and be sure to do a test swatch!
Wool, cotton or bamboo blends are all good choices, and can suit a variety of seasons. The thicker yarn and 4.0 mm needles makes this a relatively quick knit. Perfect for gift giving.
The garment pictured was made with Rowan’s All Seasons Cotton in the shade called Scarlet, no. 236, although to my mind it more of a lovely rich coral.
This garment is almost seamless which makes for comfortable flat joins. Knit in one piece from the hem to the underarms, the work is then divided for the back and front sections. Choose how many buttons you want, 1, 2, 3 or 4. Larger sizes may accommodate 5 or 6 buttons. The minimum recommended is 1. Button-hole placement is listed for each option.
The shoulder seams are woven together(you can seam them if you prefer) then the sleeves are knit in the round from the shoulder to cuff. The hood is knit in one piece from the extended centre back neckline then additional stitches are picked up from along the sides. Just two small seams are required to attach the lower edge of the hood to the neckline.
The pattern features full charts for the body sections and the sleeves in all 5 sizes. The instructions for the hood is written.
You may choose to work either from the written directions or from the charts, or cross reference between the two styles.
The sizes will fit newborn to 6 months as well as 9-12 m, 18-24 m, 1-2 yrs and 3-4 years.
Please refer to the finished measurements. Not all babies fit within standard sizing parameters!
Knit, and gift, with joy!

The photographs are true to the best of digital photography’s ability! Colours are true to my eye and on my computer screen, but we all know that each monitor’s representation can vary.
In the case of pottery, there are many complexities in colour and texture that quite simply, are best appreciated in person. Each one is a unique piece of art!
Details of each item including dimensions, weight, composition, etc. accompany each listing.
Pieces of pottery and hand made textiles come with a hand written card with relevant details about the piece including composition, care, catalogue number ( if applicable), and a personal message.
* A note about pottery and ceramics. It is the nature of clay that it is breakable! Please handle your pieces with care to avoid chipping or breakage. No guarantees can be given in terms of longevity. For best results, hand wash pieces with mild dish detergent and hand dry. Although they are dishwasher safe, it is not reccommended. Likewise, use in a microwave oven is not advisable.
Some crazing of the glaze is normal and to be expected. This will not affect the usefulness of your pottery.
