I've been on a hat knitting binge. They're fast and easy. Each one using up a skein of yarn from my stash. I didn't have anyone in mind to knit them for, I just knit them because I wanted to try out the patterns (all free patterns ). Starting clockwise from the upper left is a basic beanie. From a pattern called turn a square - the stripes make a square pattern on the crown. It's knit of Wool-Ease, a washable acrylic blend and it turned out big, which is OK. The white hat on the upper right is called Sisters Hat. I used washable wool for this one. I fits my 21" head a little snug. The earflap hat pattern is named Thorpe. Knit from Bernat chunky acrylic. I really like how it turned out, but I knit the small size, so it's for a child. The blue hat, also knit from Wool-Ease has a trellis pattern made of small cables and the ribbing makes it stretchy. It's pattern is called Claudia. So - friends and family, you may find a hat in your stocking this holiday!
