I have 4 , yes FOUR hats to show off today. Lets dive right in 🙂
I started this knitted hat last week and I finished it a few days ago. Knitting is so much fun. But the decreasing is stressful. My DPNs( double pointed needles to the non knitters) dont like me. my stitches fall off and I have to pick them up and a few I have to re-knit. I ‘ll get the hang of it someday. This one also has a crocheted brim. I started the decrease too early.
This Pom Pom hat is entirely knit. I’ve had this yarn for a few years and it needed to become something. I love this hat!!!!
If you dont live under a rock or have no life 🙂 then you might of seen people post their version of the messy bun/ponytail beanie. I jumped on the band wagon last night after I saw my facebook newsfeed blow up with crocheters and their beanies.
The first, I used a pattern I had in my ravelry queue.( Urban Shells Beanie ) To make it into a pony tail beanie I just single crocheted 24 around an elastic and continued with the pattern as it was written out. I’m glad I chose this design. And yes I used the same yarn I used for the knitted hat above 🙂 I have a few skeins of it.
This one I just winged. I wanted something that would let some air through. And we all know I like post stitches, so they’re included too 🙂 I will post this pattern soon (for free) . I chose these colors because its almost Christmas. My fiance and I are going to the Festival of Lights in Mystic CT tonight and I want to wear this. All I do is wear ponytails so these hats are perfect for me.
