FO: Aviator Hat for Baby J
I'm trying my best to stay the heck out of yarn stores, online as well as the brick 'n mortars!
Oy. I'd love to knit up my stash before I die! Which will be about 35 years from now...

Anyhoo, I used some leftover yarn to knit a darling Aviator Hat for my great-grandson! The pdf available at Ravelry, $4. The designer gives such great instructions, 5 pages worth, including great photos of every step along the way. I liked this hat (worsted version) so much that I purchased her bulky pdf as well. (the numbers change)





Here are my notes, and you can click over to the hat's page and get the pdf if you like.

The hat takes a day.

Awww that is so cute!

I've been knitting up my stash making hats for charity. They're great projects for those times when I need something mindless. Last night I knit one up using two strands and it made a nice warm hat and makes the stash go twice as fast!

(I'll be posting pix when I get a few more done and then I'll post the whole lot of 'em. )

Oh, what an adorable hat. Baby J's goin' be styling now!

And I admire your ability to stop buying yarn and use up your stash. That's quite a feat!!!

ArtLady, everything you make looks incredible! Seriously. It's a wonder you do not sell the items you make.

Thanks for sharing this project. I'm going to have to bookmark it for the future. I'm starting to receive requests to make things, and this is so unique and fun!

Thanks!

I'd love to knit for profit, but in most cases, the pattern is under copyright protection....and in all cases folks can't pay what your time is worth.

Even designers are having a tough go of making a living off their incredible design talents.
