All your hats look fantastic Brenda, but I like your flapper hat the best! It's SOOOO cute and looks so different than the rest of them.

Nice job on all of the hats! They look great! My favorite is the flapper hat. Do you have a pattern you can share for it? Also, the type yarn you used?
Thanks! :D

lol...yes Trudy was suppose to be in all of them wearing the hats but they were mostly too big for her. i should have taken a picture of them with Doug's bear! perrrrdy!

anyway that hat is one of the lion patterns. I doctored it a bit to fit my big noggin though i am sure i won't be the one who ends up wearing it in the end. the yarn i used was called "Felis" i believe...i don't have the label with me unfortunately. and even though i did the pattern bigger it only used about 1 1/2 balls. i got 4 total so i have more to play with...lol. i would have used the landscapes if the store i was at had it though.

after i got all the k2tog stuff done it was super quick and easy. got it done in less than 3 hours i think. the first two rows were the hardest and i did have to frog at one point because it got twisted while i was doing the first row and i didn't notice it until about 4 rows into it. (i still want to know how they figure you can put all those stitches on DPNs! I did mine on a 24 inch circ and it worked fine.

OH, I LOVE the checkerboard hat!!! It is so cool and I can totally see my DD10 wearing it.

You do great work. I haven't tried making a hat yet but I like to try the checkerboard one.

Hi Brenda,

I voted for the flapper hat, but it was a hard choice between that and the checkerboard hat! :thinking:
I loved the colors of the handpainted and the norotrudy hats, but I think the styling on the checkerboard and flapper are more distinctive!

They're ALL beautiful!!!!!!

Way to go Does it make you wish you could wear more than one at a time?

Happy Hat Knitting :XX: :XX:

Mary

it is super easy though i did break the pattern a bit on that one cuz i was doing it from memory when i got to the checker part. i am still quite happy with it though so that's okay...lol
