All the children wore red-and-white spotted caps. If strangers came into the forest, they curled up, still as stone, for all the world like four red-and-white spotted mushrooms. - Elsa Beskow, Children of the Forest
Baby's First Halloween
Dress: Traditional Mabel Dress from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies. This is the second time I've knit this dress. First, here. It is knit in Haneke Exotics Linen/Merino blend, frogged from those epic socks. I love everything about this dress.
Hat: No pattern, just knit top down and regularly increased until it fit. Knit on US 9 with Elsebeth Lavod Silky Wool held double and embroidered with leftover white yarn.
I've been dreaming about this costume for years.
