On The Needles

Getting little boys to be hat models is a tough job!  I made Elliot's Bun Hat using Bernet Softee Chunky yarn. Look how nice it covers his neck. I bought this same yarn in green to make this hat for Ernie-he likes how it covers the neck. And then I probably won't ever make another one using this pattern.  4 is enough for me.


I bought 2 skeins of this yarn and needed to use part of the second one for Elliot's hat which is the smaller size on the pattern.  With the remaining yarn, I down sized the pattern to make another hat for Corbin. It fits and will probably only fit this winter.  

I'm working on an Easy Lacy Headband in pink for sister Mae. I need to sit down and get that finished. She will model it proudly for me.

I agree, making four hats from the same pattern is challenging to keep going. You did it! Such a cute little guy. Looking forward to seeing the headband.

The coverage this hat gives on the nape is wonderful. I might have to knit a couple of them.

They are nice hats! And a nice looking young man! Merry Christmas.

My DH wants a hat to keep his neck warm too, so I may have to try this pattern. Yours turned out very nice. Your hat model is so cute. Nice color for a boys hat too.
