i made a hat... and you can, too!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Happy April!  
Can you believe it?  
April!  
Just back from our Spring Break where the boys and I headed to Colorado so the boys could ski.  Libby took a girls trip with her best friend to my extremely fun, awesome sisters home in Florida.  
Everyone was happy.  So, so happy.  Love that.  
I finally finished a hat.  (AND, I have a finished sweater!  Really excited to show that, too!) 
A hat that Nichole designed and is published in the One + One : Hats.
The triangular wedge hat is knit just like that.  In two wedges with opposite patterns.  You then pick up stitches for the crown of the hat.  Nichole knit the pattern in two colors.  I decided to switch it up a bit and knit it in one color.  I must admit, I like it in two colors better, but I like that we can see how one color looks.  
Nichole would love to send one of my readers a copy of the book.  32 patterns in all including this fun to knit gem.  If interested, please leave a comment here before Sunday the 7th 5:00pm EST and I will have the random generator choose the number.

{And that?  That's Charlie.  My now seventeen year old, six foot, skinny, long haired skier. Life is FUN!}

    I really like the pattern (and the fact that your 17-year-old son will model for you!) Wonder whether a teen boy would prefer the single color, or the two color version? I'm thinking about mine, and I'm not sure. Would love to give it a try, though!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This hat is awesome! I am going to agree, better in 2 colors. But, the 2 colors looks more girly for some reason. One color is more manly. Probably because most men (in my life at least) don't want to wear colorful hats.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love this hat...thanks for the giveaway! (I really like the one color hat better, I guess I'm in the minority?)
