Warm creatures

warm creaturesI recently made a rash of toddler hats. The base of these are very similar to my Magic Hat pattern (with fewer stitches). I decided Z’s friends with September and October birthdays needed warm hats with ears. The ears were a little freeform. I knew what general shape I wanted and made them one at a time, taking notes after the first of each ear. warm creatures-2I’m pretty happy with the outcome, although I think I’d make the ears slightly smaller on the ear width at the base for the darker hat. These were all made with Cascade 220 Superwash for the body of the hat and Madeline Tosh DK in Flour Sack for the inner ear. warm creatures-3I apologize for these super dark pics. I snapped these at the last second before heading out the door to give them away so I would at least have some evidence of their existence. I hate when I can’t get pics in natural light.

Let me distract you with a cute baby to make up for it: warm creatures-4Check out that major drool, y’all.
