Knitting Hats

Granny K has been knitting hats for 9 grandchildren this season.  A definite improvement in her mojo compared to last year when the chosen project was slippers.
I decided to try some hats too.  Three so far:
One for me, with rhinestone snowflake that was my mother's:
 And two for friends to go with their last year gifts.

After thinking and examining my friends' heads, I have decided to frog the purply one and make it bigger.  I hate it when it isn't big enough, and since it took me 3 days, with many distractions the first time, I think I have time.
Patterns used:
#1 and 2: Head Huggers by Gail Tanquary from Ann Norling #55, with my own variations; Yarn #1: Wool-Ease Glitter / Multi by Lion BrandAran / 10 ply, 78% Acrylic, 19% Wool, 3% Polyester, 162 yards / 70 grams; #2: Pastaza by Cascade YarnsAran / 10 ply, 50% Wool, 50% Llama, 132 yards / 100 grams#3: Zig Zag Beanie by Dawn Leeseman from Interweave Knits, Fall 2008;  Yarn: Shepherd Worsted Multi by Lorna's LacesAran / 10 ply, 100% Wool, 225 yards / 114 grams


  1. I ADORE hats, like seriously, if I attempt making a sweater like I am doing now, knitting time is down to a minimum, or erm have not touched it apart from 5 minutes in Riga. Hats rock socks....has C. shared this with you also an this lovely thing here...
    i have invisible hearts floating all around my head with the sight of this....

  2. I love the idea of the broach on the hat. I'm going to look through my jewellery box for hat decorations. Thanks for the idea.


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
