A good friend from our school in England gave me a task last year, to make two hats for her children and she was very specific about what they should look like.
Her daughter requested bright pink with two pompoms either side of the hat.
She wanted ties that were plaited.
The hat itself needed to have a cable pattern running all around it.
And instead of decreasing for the head I kept it straight and did a three needle bind-off.
I am very pleased with the final result, but I am kicking myself that I didn’t write the pattern down as I think I’d be able to sell it and any creations from it!
My friend also ordered one in yellow for her son.
My friend was sweet enough to send me pictures of her children wearing their hats…I just love them!
