Hats, hats, and more hats

Standard

I spent most of the weekend making hats. I really like how the simple features bring out the personalities of the character hats.

A couple of the grandkids are really into Pokemon, so my first character hats are Pokemon. The smaller grandkids like SpongeBob.

Great-grandson has claimed this one without even seeing the picture. Finally, my favorite SpongeBob character, Patrick Starr.

I can make almost any character into a hat as long as I can see a good picture of the character. Hats are machine washable and can be made in any size from baby to adult. Reasonably priced at $10 (plus $2 for shipping).

Experimented a little more with the slipper pattern. A circular needle does NOT work for the toe. Thought about trying dpns but I don’t have any 8s and walmart quit carrying dpns. So it will be awhile before I can try that.

Uploaded my Caribbean Star hat pic to Pinterest and got several likes and re-pins. The pattern (with 7 total color variations) is for sale on Ravelry.

This is a really neat pattern because simple color changes make the hat look totally different. Using one color brings out the texture:

Aran Star Hat

White and any color, especially ombres, are a stunning combination:

Ombre Bright Star Hat

The hat is also stunning with ombre yarn and two coordinating solids:

Sunset Star Hat

Several granddaughters got these tone-on-tone variations for Christmas:
