Nutty Beanie with a flower applique


DSC03924 DSC03928

Ms.Aadya requested this hat yesterday,for her to wear to the Teddy Bear picnic at School today.She lovedddddddd it..and didn’t take it off all day.

She picked out a fancy yarn,from my yarn chest and asked me if I could please make a hat for her,that would cover her ears.This is what I love about being able to knit/crochet-I can make things as I like and don’t have to settle for something,I don’t like.

This beanie is slightly longer than most,just because,I needed it to cover her ears..we are so done,with ear-infections.

For this hat,I used:

Yarn- Moda fashion yarn

Hook- 4.00mm

Pattern-I just improvised as I went.I started with –

Ch4,sl st to form ring.

Ch2,10 Dc in the ring.

Ch2,2 Dc in each each DC,all around.

Ch2,DC in first DC,2DC in next DC,all around-This row is repeated till the hat fits the head.-I think two or three more rounds. I was checking it on her head.Once you get the desired circumference,

Ch2,DC on each DC all around- 3 more times,till you get the desired height.

Ch1,Sc all around.finish and weave in ends.

Decorate with a motiff of your choice.I used this tutorial from Applehead’s blog.

I wasn’t very sure about using this color for a kids beanie..but I like the way,its come out!

A Durango for me..

Winter is here..and I hate the greys it brings with it…grey skies,grey coats,grey moods.
I have decided to bring in color in my life this winter…This hat is the first step.
When I made the Durango hat for my friend,Devi..I loved it.I wanted to make one for myself..but I was so tired of making the orders,that I didn’t get around to it.One of my goals this year is to knit more for my family and myself.I will still do a few orders..but somehow,it just doesn’t work out alright for me.The yarn too expensive,me too shy to ask for the right price or any money at all.This year I have decided to take orders only if when yarn is provided.Lets see how long,I can keep it up.
Anyway,here’s the hat,that this post is about-

A close up-

Sadly,this pattern is no longer available..
I am very happy with the finish of this one.Now all I need is a matching scarf..:)
