As some of you may know I have a 2 year old almost granddaughter (my late sisters grandchild) and I think it's never to early to be a Pippi, so I've made her the outfit to wear.
The pattern to this sweater is a traditional fishermans sweater from the west coast of Sweden, and since that's where I live it's even more fitting.
Anyway as I sat there knitting away on the sweater I began to think that it would be great with a matching hat, and so the Pippi-wig hat started to form itself.
Here they are:





Hopefully she'll like them, and hopefully you do to.

I really like the sweater pattern. What did you knit it with? Great colorwork, btw.

The sweater is made in baby wool and needles 2.5 (european) and the colours are traditional. It's either offwhite with red and navy stripes or navy with red and offwhite stripes that are the original colours.
The hat is made with two threads of alpacca in two different oranges. Needles 3 I think. It's not traditional in any way Smiley

It was fairly simple to knit. The pattern is 1 blue, 1 white for two rows (simple intarsia) and then switch to 1 white, 1 blue for 2 rows. Then it's white for 15 rows and the same with the red.
It's only a basic sweater so this pattern can be applied to most children sweaters.

Here's a close up of the neckline and you can se the pattern easier here.
