FO: Hedgie Hats
Maizie () helped me find this pattern for the A Real Stocking Cap after Ladybug requested a "Hedgie Hat". At that time her favorite book was Jan Brett's The Hat and she requested a hat like Hedgie. She chose a "hedgie" colored yarn for her hat, but it came out too big and her big brother got to have it. The reason it was too big is I didn't like the effect I was getting from the pattern & decided to do stockinette stitch for the body of the hat after the K2P2 ribbing.

I chose purple for the second attempt & was happier with the results. Still not happy with the pattern, I chose to do the adult K4, P1 pattern for the child size after K2P2 ribbing.

The acrylic is too warm for here so I'm currently working on two new versions using cotton yarn (Sugar & Cream, but am going to look for Cotton Tot type to use instead).

Second attempt went much faster and I used Vanna's Choice in purple mist


Thanks for looking!

I love Jan Brett! We have several of those books and I love the drawings on the edges.

Cute hat!

Yes, she does! I have to hurry up with the cotton ones because last week she was wearing hers during the hot, humid, & voggy weather. Had to talk her into putting it away so we could go do something cooler.
