Candy Corn Djevellues

Candy corn djevellue
Now that the weather is starting to get chillier, I decided that I was going to turn the cute Norwegian knitting pattern "Djevellue" into something a whole lot sweeter to keep my little ones warm: Candy corns.

Funny, really, because the first Candy Corn Djevellue was knit in a size Adult as a test of how big the worsted weight will be as written. Exactly a largish adult size. From that point on, I roughly knew how many stitches to take away to form the 6-9 month version. Talk about deja-vu for knitting. Can you tell that I'm trying to plow through the "Warm Knits" for the wee-ones? It's like nesting, but knit-style.

So cute! If I had time, I'd make one for each of my four cats for halloween. :)

How cuute! Love them!

Djevlelue actually means Devil´s hat, but I don´t really know why. They are really nice though, I love the fit!

It comes from the shape and point of the hat. I was thinking the same thing myself. glad someone nicknamed it "sweet baby cap" though.
