Cute hats

I am busy with hats, socks and sweaters lately and have started about half a dozen projects in the last month.  Some I have even finished!  :) I thought I would share some pictures of some really cute hats I have made in the last couple of weeks.

Here is Oliver in the first one I made.

























This pattern is called the "Mia Hat" and was written by Danyel Pink.  You can download it from ravelry (www.ravelry.com) for a few dollars.  This pattern is great for someone new to crocheting.  It is really easy to make.  I made it because I wanted to know how to make ribbing (like in knitting) with crochet.  I am working on writing some sock patterns and a hat pattern where I want to use ribbing.  Well, ribbing with crochet - easy.  Crochet in the back loop.




















The pattern has 5 sizes.  These three are 3-6 months, 6-12 months and toddler.  I used Rauma Vamsegarn on the two bigger ones and Drops Nepal on the little one.  They both work fine with an I hook.  But I like the softness of Nepal.






































Oliver loves this hat!  He tries to put it on after I have taken it off. :)  And I think it is wicked cute.


























I will definately be making this pattern again!
