Every Pair Of Mittens Needs A...

12:16 AM

HAT! Hats and mittens just go together, right? They are like peas and carrots. Oil and vinegar. Winter and blankets. Ok, you get the idea. So after the mittens were done, I just knew they needed new hats. Besides, hats are like my favorite thing to knit!

For Emma Grace's hat I used the leftover yarn from her backpack. I love this hurricane hat! I think it is going to look so cute on her little head! I made a few slight changes to compensate for the bulky yarn and changing of sizes. I cast on 60 stitches using a bulky yarn on size 8 needles and then followed the rest of the instructions. Many thanks to my niece who so willingly modeled for me! (A girl will do anything for a lollipop!)

For Joshua I chose this pattern from Through The Loops. Knit on double pointed needles from the crown down, it was quite different to knit. I love this pattern but I will admit that I'd rather knit a hat on a circular than dpn's. Many thanks to Emma Grace's baby doll for modeling this hat for me!
