Natty Hat!

My son had me knitting him a voluminous 'Dr Who'-style scarf earlier in the year - his next request was for a hat with ear-flaps. It has taken me until now to find a suitable pattern and with a little 'customising' it's finally finished!

It was an American pattern and the nearest match I could find for yarn turned out a hat that was just a tad loose - so I knit a second one on smaller needles and sewed it inside: one very smartly lined hat and now my son's head is 'toasty warm' (his quote!)

A brief respite whilst I busied myself with Christmas preparations means I am now mulling over what to tackle next - revisit one of my laid-aside WIPs or start something new....?



  1. FABULOUS! I love the colours, pattern and design.
    Does he wear the Dr Who scarf a lot?

  2. I am so jealous! That hat is just so beautiful. And the warmth factor? Well, my mother always said that necessity was the mother of invention. I think you've hit on something here. My ears are always cold...I may try your idea of lining a hat.

  3. Looks great!
    I've had this hat in my queue since it came out...
    Seeing yours in these colours have made it a hat a want to knit this winter :)
