This time last week I was on the last round of a very big crochet project that I have been working on. It has gone surprisingly quick because I have worked on it exclusively. Then I needed a bit of a break from it. So I knitted these two hats.
The bigger one is toddler size and follows the Simple Lines Baby Hat pattern by Heather Tucker. The smaller one is for a six months old baby and is a slight variation on the Basic Baby Hat pattern also by Heather Tucker. I just added a row of eyelet holes above the ribbing because I felt like it! I managed to use just 27g of yarn on the smaller hat and about 44g on the larger one.
I love the pink and the variegated yarns in these hats. Little girls seem to love pink even when their mothers try to steer them towards other colours.
If I had stuck with my larger project, it would be finished by now. But the weather here is very warm at the moment, so it still doesn't appeal to me. I feel one more hat in my system before the temperature cools down a little next week. Watch this space...
