Busy Weekend Knitting
Sunday, January 09, 2005

Corsage HelmetI've spend all weekend knitting. I made a pair of hand warmers (from Weekend Knitting : 50 Unique Projects and Ideas) to match my new down coat. Then I decided I needed a matching hat. I really like hats with ear flaps. I need warmth So I made an earflap helmet hat from Interweave Knits Summer 2003. But it looked weird. My coat is dark silvery grey. I made the mitts out of two strands of Patons Decor, grey heather and olive, so they're pretty dull. I made the hat out of the same colors so when I put it on I felt like I belonged riding on a post-apocalyptic rat trap out of "Mad Max" or something. The hat needed a little cheering up. So I knit a rose they had in the first issue of Knit 1. I sewed it on and thus my hat was complete. It's kind of cute but werid at the same time. I started making a mistake rib scarf in the same colors, but I ran out of yarn.

Baby HatThen today I went to my lys and bought some Mission Falls 1824 Cotton to make a baby hat for Kyle's cousin. She's going to pop any day now. I don't know if she's having a boy or a girl, so I bought green and grey yarn. I made the green hat tonight and I'll make the grey one some other day. The hat pattern is from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. It's the first pattern I used from that book and it came out cute. It's funny to think this little hat will fit anyone, it's so tiny.

iLOVE your hat with ear flaps and the rose. Can you please share the pattern(s)? I'd appreciate it. My son wants an earflap hat and your pattern is the best one that I've seen

Hi! I just stumbled across this website and absolutely love your hat. Can you share your pattern ?
Like the previous comment, I love the way this one looks, not too tight or pointy. :D

Thanks!

I actually didn't design this hat, it's from the Interweave Knits Summer 2003 issue, so I can't post the pattern, since I don't own the copyright. They still have back issues available at http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/back_issues/SU_03.asp
