I had this great idea that I would knit a bunch of hats this past year, and then when we got together with our extended families for Christmas, I would have this wonderful assortment of items that our family members could choose from. I didn't quite make it. I've shared some of the items over the year, and here of some more that I finished. Maybe next Christmas this will work out!
The newest hats to the collection are....
Alpine Topper. You've probably seen this in Interweave Knits in the Halcyon Yarns ad for the past few winters. I love this design! When I visited Halcyon Yarns this fall I just had to get the pattern and yarn to make it. The green is Lamb's Pride Bulky in Turkish Green and the variegated is Malabrigo Rasta in Arco Iris. I probably have enough of the Malabrigo left to make at least 2 more of these hats, maybe 3. I think I need a blue one and either a Burgandy one or a grey.
Antler Hat. I couldn't get one of the boys to model it for me to get a better picture but the hat itself is getting passed around among them quite a bit. They love the deep ribbing that folds up so that it's doubled over their ears! I used Madelinetosh Vintage in Weathered Frame. I made the largest size and used all but 30 inches of the skein!
He Said She Said. I used Berocco Blackstone Tweed Chunky for this hat. It is super yummy yarn and I would love to have a sweater knit in this!
Twisted Rib Hat. I made the child size for this so that I could use up some Dream in Color Classy I had leftover from a sweater I made for me niece. Coincidentally I think this same niece is the only person that this hat will fit :-)
Ravellenic Games this year. I'm not sure yet what I want to knit or what team/s I want to join. What about you? Are you planning any knitting for watching the Olympics?
