Pattern: Toasty Topper by Alexis Riggs, Knitty - Winter 2007
Yarn: Plymouth Suri Merino (doubled), 2 balls
Needles: US 7 + 8
Recipient: Graham Carter
Notes: None really, except that this is a brilliant little pattern I saw a lot of mothers knitting for their babies. Figuring this was a good way to spot a handknitted gift that would be both special AND useful, I followed suit. Hope it serves little Graham well for one or two Maine winters! (and springs - it's cold in Maine!). I also hope it fits him better than it fits my gracious model, Will Shortz.

Hi, I just love this little topper!! Wiil have to make this for a new baby coming this year! Thanks for the links you provide...so nice! And I found you looking for a pattern in Phildar 416 04-05, pattern 014! Got to have this and it looks like the whole magazine is cool. I don't care that it is in french, I will just work through it! Course I have to find it....There seem to be just no sources that sell it and still have it. And I was told it is out of print. Do you still have yours? Would you be interested in selling just that pattern, I wouldn't think it would infringe on copywrite since it's out of print? Any way would love to hear from you. love your blog....thanks! Cynthia
looks great!! i recently threw the peanut's in the washer and dryer and it now fits her much better. i think that the yarn got a little stretched out. either that or head grew in the last two weeks which is entirely probable! little graham will no doubt be very toasty in this one :)
Very cute! The red is nice and cheerful. I love your penguin stuffed animal, too.
Too cute - it's perfect in red! Your little penguin wears it well, but I'm sure it will be even better on a wee Mainer. I may have to knit one for my small neighborling for next year.
What an interesting deign, I've never seen one before. Very cute!
You finished! And it's adorable!
The red is so cheerful! I'm sure the little guy will be toasty warm.
so cute on little will shortz. and believe me, my wraps are an abomination.
Cute pattern! I thought your cat was the model in the first photo and spent WAY too long trying to figure out which way he was facing. I think I need another cup of coffee...
i saw a couple of FO pics of the toasty topper over at Ravelry and they are all soooo cute!! love it in that yarn. kudos!
I'm so glad to read that you liked the pattern, it's been in my queue for a bit and seeing how gorgeous yours turned out I'm taking the plunge! cute, cute, cute.
So cute, and the pompom is the icing!
oh that does look so snuggly and warm!
