FOs: Hats Galore for my Brother’s Family

I made a bunch of hats for my brother’s family for Christmas 2013, every single one of them got a hat…there are five of them.

2013 Christmas hat for my brother

My brother received this hat, a DROPS pattern of course. He loved it, but then his nephew in Germany borrowed it and loved it so much he kept it. Now I take that as a great sign!

So towards the end of the year my brother asked if I could make him another hat, now for those who know me, I LOVE getting requests like this, especially when it’s from family! He really liked the hats I had made for his kids, see below, and requested one in his size. So I used the kids pattern and amended it to fit my head/his head.

My sister-in-law received this one, which I also knitted for myself and I wear mine all the time in Winter, I posted about it here. She tells me that she loves it too.

This one was for my niece Clara, who according to my brother wore it all the time and really, really loved it. The pattern is the same I used for my two nephews.

I told my sister-in-law that she could wash the hats, which stretched it and made it way to big for her to wear, so she asked if she could have another one, and she picked the red and white for the next one, which I just knitted recently.

This hat was for my nephew, Yoan, who refused to wear any other hat throughout the entire year.

When his mum washed this hat, it shrunk to a size that simply didn’t fit my nephew anymore. So, he said he’d really want another one, but it had to be exactly the same.

My smallest nephew, Mateo received this one, which fit perfectly. But being under 1 at the time of receiving this his head grew and he needed a new one this Winter.

Overall I made nine hats in total for them and they were all very well received, which makes me very happy indeed.

  1. […] It’s the exact same hat I’ve made for him twice before, just a little bit bigger. He loved it so much that he requested it once after it shrunk in the wash and once more when he lost it. I blogged about the other two here. […]
