Nana Knits

IMG_9340IMG_9331IMG_9332

There is nothing nicer than a Nana knitted garment. My kids are very lucky in that they have my Mother-in-law, my Mum and my Nana (amongst others) that knit for them!

My Mother-in-law recently finished knitting this gorgeous double breasted car coat and beret for Isabelle. The wool she used is so lovely and soft and is a merino, possum blend. The pattern is from the book Vintage Knits for Modern Babies by Hadley Fierlinger. I love this book it is so awesome!

 

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you might remember the Vintage Pixie Hat I knitted for Isabelle, also from this book.

My, how much she’s grown!

Thank you Nana Jocelyn for such a lovely coat and hat, I know Isabelle is going to get a lot of wear out of them both this and probably the next Winter to come!

I love this pattern! She looks just like the original photo! I have made the beret, but have always loved the whole ensemble. Your mum did a great job - same colour and everything. Looks so cosy and sweet. My mum knits lots too - love it!!

What a beautiful ensemble your daughter is wearing. Very cozy - wonder how it would look in an adult size.
