all about the hats




it really is all about the hats round here right now, i have spent the last few weeks trying to make up my own pattern for a mini hat, to gift as the perfect presents for two little girls just about to turn two


i now (almost) have two finished hats, just need to finish the flower for the second one, as you can see little O wasn't too delighted to be modelling a hat which she knew was not for her (i had to make this point very clear before showing her the said hat, as i know how attached she becomes to these things)


(there you go, without flash & looking slightly less grumpy)

i had to knit each hat twice as well, as one came up too small, then the next too big but i am very pleased with how they have turned out, 

for this one i used some patons 'merino wool dk' which had come out of an odd ball bin, & was surprisingly lovely to knit with, then just added a crochet flower, which i also made up as i went along

i have just cast on for another aviatrix hat today, as big G's teacher is about to go on maternity leave, so i'll be back with more hats soon!

  1. I think Little O is modelling the hat very well she looks gorgeous in it. I'm not surprised she wants to keep it!

  6. Gorgeous hat, love the colour - no wonder little O wants to keep it. At least she's still for the picture, my two never manage that!
