In the last few years I’ve developed quite a ‘thing’ for crocheting hats at this time of year. I think it is because they are so quick to whip up, make me feel cosy and my littles look adorable in them!
So far this year I have made Emma and Matthew one hat each, however my little guy is growing so fast he will need another one by the end of this week!
These days Emma has a few more ideas about what she wears, she asked for her hat to be purple and pink and not to have a pom pom but a flower instead. I feel that I carried out my brief pretty well and she certainly seems happy with it! But she is not always a willing model so these are phone snaps when she wasn’t expecting it! Ha!
A few technical notes for those who get curious about these things…
Yarn: Stylecraft Special Chunky Shades: Emperor & Raspberry
Hat Pattern: Made up as I went (Basic treble stitch beanie with a front-post/back-post ribbing)
Flower Pattern: The Never Ending Wildflower by Little Monkeys Crochet
Happily, Matthew is a little more laid back about me dressing him up in a wooly hat while still indoors to take photographs!
In truth with no requests to fulfill this hat was really a case of using whatever ‘boyish colours’ I had on hand, a bit of a stash buster hat. Actually until he was wearing it I wasn’t totally sure I liked my own colour choices.
A few more technical notes for those who get curious about these things…
Yarn: Stylecraft Special Chunky Shades: Dark Brown, Midnight, Teal & Cream
