Dear Henry

12 Apr


Poor little boys. Or rather, poor knitters who knit for little boys. One does not realize the imbalance of the ratio of girl-to-boy knitting patterns until one tries to find a boy suitable pattern. It’s rather sad.

I was very pleased to see just how much of a positive response there was the the Dear Liza pattern. As a mother of a son, I did feel a tinge of guilt for leaving out all the wonderful little boys out there. In the interest of fairness I created Dear Henry. Dear Henry enlists the same type of eyelet pattern for ventilation as it’s feminine partner but they are cleverly hidden in the garter stitch band. A shorter hat and a flatter crown lend to a more masculine look.

Yardage: 110-250yds
