Every Pair Of Mittens Needs A…

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!
