sweetheart hat  isobar-hat


Every year we go on a hunt for a Valentine's Day hat that has a nod to the holiday but isn't so obvious that it can't be worn other days of the year!  This year we have two ideas.  The first is Sweetheart Hat by Deepika.  Knit out of worsted weight yarn, utilizes cables to form very soft hearts.  And then we topped it with a fabulous red Pom Pom.  We have an assortment of pom pom colors to suit any taste. 

The second one is Isobar by Plucky Knitter.  It is a garter stitch hat that is not Valentine's, but by using red yarn it becomes more festivecan be made valentine by using red yarn.  We knit ours out of Baby Llama chunky


Giftmas Week #2 - His & Hers

giftmas #2 his and hers hats

For week number 2 we have chosen his & hers hats, both of which knit up quickly for last-minute gifts!  The hat on the left is Rafa's Hat by Joji Locatelli.  Written to use worsted weight, it has the perfect amount of simplicity for the men in our lives.  It would also look great for a female.  The hat on the right is Fidra by Gudrun Johnston.  It is written for bulky and accessorizes beautifully.  We put a felted flower pin from Tres Chic, but a pom pom on top looks equally as well.  We have an assortment of colors in faux fur pom poms to finish it off.
