We’re invited to a first birthday party for the son of a friend of ours on Sunday, so I thought I’d make him a wooly hat. Especially helpful as it’s getting a little bit colder over here. I’ve taken loads of the rest bits of wool that I’ve got left over and randomly used them when knitting the hat.
I think the colours worked out really well. I’m also pleased to say that this time I didn’t actually use a pattern, but rather I made it up as I went along. It’s turned out ok, I think. But the true test will be on Sunday when the hat gets tried on.
As an added extra I made a pom pom, which was a little more challenging then I remembered, mainly because a few friends where giving me different ideas as to how to make pom poms…However, I found it easiest when I made them how I remembered, as you can see here.
But check out the finished product…what do you think? I’ll also try and get a picture of the hat on the baby’s head on Sunday!
