Innocent big knit patterns

Links to knit and crochet patterns for the Big Knit. I've tried to link to places with multiple patterns, rather then list each individual pattern! I might even try writing my own crochet pattern.

Innocent big knit!

I've been making some hats to donate to innocent for their big knit campaign, each bottle with a hat they sell, they donate money to Age UK. And it's great for using up scraps. AND you can crochet too!

"Granny" Shawl

I've made this granny shawl, all from Ice Yarns! Pattern from Zooty Owl: http://zootyowlcards.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/corner-to-corner-granny-shawl-free.html
I finished it with 2 rows of dc on the top, then started a edging using chain 4 then sc in the gaps. When I got round to the top I turned and went back with chain 4 and sc into the gaps.
Here's the pictures!

Baby Hats!

I forgot to post these when I made them!
Purple baby hat for our little girl, the other one was given to my husband's cousin for their baby of unknown gender. The baby has now been born, it turned out to be a boy.

Both hats made from Ice Yarn. Size should be about 3 months.

This week's finished items!

This week I started and finished an adults hat made with Stylecraft Chunky Harlequin, and a baby's waistcoat from the same yarn. In total, I used 2 balls. Last week I started a hat in Ice Yarn, making a ribbed hat. This took me a while because it was US sc in back loops only, so I had to concentrate to just do one loop. If I was to do it again, I would do US dc so that it goes a bit faster!
I put the waistcoat on a teddy to model it, the yarn is hard to photograph!
And here are the hats:

The purple one matches the baby hat I made our little girl.
And I had enough yarn left over to make 2 headbands!
