Hats Off for the Holidays


Wow, has it really been a week since last I posted?  Like everyone else in the free world I’ve been busy.  So, so, busy.  Okay, not really.  I mean yeah there are things to do but that hardly means I’m busy?  Maybe I’ll save my annoyance with the ‘busy’ phenomenon for another day because today I want to show you what I HAVE been working on!  HATS!

About a week and a half ago I decided for Christmas I would make all my nieces and nephews, along with my own kids, a hat for Christmas.  That’s a total of 10 hats, five boys and five girls.

For the boys I decided to go with the Monster Hat from The Boy Trifecta it’s just cute and both my young gentlemen, ages 6 and 14, gave their approval.  I did change up the color scheme on a couple and I went ahead and crocheted the teeth.

For the girls I went with two different designs, baby owls and flower power.  The flower power hats are just a basic hat with a Rosette, ala Lion Brand Yarn.  I’ve been seeing owls and other hats like that for a while now and I thought that it might be a quick and easy make, yay, I was right.

To make the owls I chained 30 then began double crocheting down and around that chain.  For the three month of niece I crocheted four rows before decreasing my stitch ( I decreased every four stitches).  Then I went on to crochet seven more rows.  So if you’re keeping count that’s a total of 12 rows of stitches.  For the older niece I didn’t decrease until the last row, just to keep the hat on her head.  For the eyes I just used what I’d learned from the boys hat.  The nose…I winged it.  Just play around you’ll get it.

I hope they like them!
