I've started a bit of holiday knitting. The only problem is that as fast as I can make these hats my kids claim them as their own, leaving me to make another, and another and another. . .
The lowest hat above was made during my son's Messiah concert the other night.
Chunky wool makes them fly off the needles.
DD#1, asked for a color work hat. Now my darling son wants one too.
I'm calling this hat Thorpe. My husband said that the one below looks like Jim Thorpe's helmet.
Pattern: My own - I'll write it up and post it soon.
Yarn: Any chunky weight, I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, Nature Wool Chunky & Malibrigo Chunky
Needles: US 9
The half double crochet edge really finishes it off neatly. It's fun to dig through the stash for contrasting yarns.
PS What is the secret to photographing pinks and reds?????? I NEVER manage to do it successfully!
