This was probably one of my favorite projects of that winter. My co-worker told me often how much his wife loves her hat. She wore it everywhere and always got lots of compliments. As you can see from the photos below, I really liked it as well.
For a crafter, the greatest pleasure is seeing another person enjoy the item you've made them. Because I liked the one I made for her so much, I ended up making an off-white version for myself.
I found the FREE pattern for this hat here. I modified it just a tad to make it a bit larger and to include triple-ribbed vertical stripes instead of single-ribbed. Otherwise, I followed the pattern and couldn't have been happier with the results.
I also made another version of this hat for a customer as you can see below:
If you would like this hat made for you, just visit my Etsy shop or click on one of the photos above, and I would be happy to oblige!
She also requested the below convertible mittens, which makes the most adorable matching set (that I couldn't resist sharing)! For the mittens, click on the below picture, which will link you to my Convertible Mittens Etsy listing.
Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
