Hat Frenzy


It all started with the idea of making a masculine hat. This is one of Vanna's Choice yarns. It's okay but nothing special.








Then I used the same yarn and needles but did a baby hat. What a difference in the way the yarn looks. I think I was using size 9 needles. Guess I need to use smaller needles on the adult hat next time.




That got me back into making baby hats. This is Bernat Baby Jacquards - I'm a Big Boy. I used size 7 needles instead of the recommended 6 so the pattern isn't quite as defined.
Here I used Baby Marble by James C. Brett.
The colors in sock yarn are so tempting but my stash is out of control. So I bought one skein of this yarn and made a baby hat. It's Paton Kroy Socks - Mexicala Stripes.

My latest craze is shortrowing. This hat is a combination of patterns and is made with Sensations Rainbow Classic Pattern - Turquoise Rainbow.


I ran across this pattern on Ravelry. It's called the Short Rows Wavy Hat and looks great with variagated yarn. Here is a pink and green hat made from Bernat Softee Chunky - Summerset Ombre.



And this hat is made from Red Heart Super Saver - Peruvian Print.

Hey Carmen, I love your hats. I too have really gotten into making them with the varigated yarns. Here is a pattern that works great with the varigated and only takes a few hours to complete.

If you have the patterns for the hats you have made I would love to have them.
