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!


  1. Du er kjempeflink, Katie. Jeg skulle gjerne likt å ha det mønsteret. I love that boy!

  2. Katie, these hats are adorable (as is your model!). They have a kind of Renaissance look with a modern yarn touch! Very nice! Can't wait to see what you make next. Therese
