Focus of the week: Hats

It’s getting cooler here in Australia, but should I really be saying that when most of the rest of the world is suffering through an endless Winter? Sorry folks, I wish I could send you some of our sunshine. But since I can’t how about seeing a collection of hats for the next few days?

First off….Simple, but effective beanies.

These beanies were a wholesale order for Greenwich Baby in Greenwich, using leftovers of DROPS Merino Extra Fine. I love this pattern, it’s my go to for a quick baby hat. Most of the sizes I can whip up in a couple of hours. And even though it’s a simple pattern I feel that a lot can be done to it with yarn and colour choices.

Same hat, different yarn. The incredibly soft DROPS Nepal.

And yet again, same hat, different yarn. This time some DROPS Muskat.

This sweet hat is another one using DROPS Nepal and I saved this to last because look at the handsome little dude wearing it.
