A Few Hats
Here are a couple of the baby hats I made this past week. As I've said before, there are a lot of babies being born in the next few months, so I've been working on some shower gifts. These two are from Susan B Anderson's book Itty-Bitty Hats. The yellow one is the Upside-Down Daisy, and the pink one is the Football Hat, only made in girly colours. I got the idea for this one from the amazing Suzanne when I was watching an episode of her video podcast :-) I'm very happy with how they both turned out and I think they look nice displayed on my new hat stands.
This is the Red Apple Hat from the Spud and Chloe blog and it's also designed by Susan B Anderson. The decrease sequences on this one are different than her other patterns, so it was fun to try out and learn a new technique.
And this hat is the Spring Beret by Natalie Larson that I knit up during one of the wedding dress fitting trips back in the summer. It was super quick and fun to make. I have yet to find a recipient for it as it doesn't look good on me due to it's yellow-tone. The front view isn't the most flattering on the hat stand but the side and back views look much better.
I think the back view is my favourite by far! I did the more slouchy version since I like my hats with a little more body to them. This might have to go on the gift-giving list for this year's Christmas presents, I'm sure I can find someone who would look fabulous in it!
Well, have a great weekend everyone! Make sure to take some time for yourself to relax and do a little crafting :-)
P.S. You can check out my Ravelry project page for some more close-up pictures, yarn, and specifics on these hats in a few days, I should have them all added by then if you're interested.
