The fall hat knitting has commenced here, with Ezra at the top of the 'in need' list. (Though, really, calling any of my kids 'in need' of a handknit hat is, well, a bit of a joke.) We wanted something that he could be wearing right now - in the in-between weather. Something sorta-warm, sorta-light, and definitely in a style that would suit my wearer-of-funkiness, Ezra.
I turned to my Favorite Knit Hat, and altered it just a bit to fit a child's head. A few tweaks in the pattern, a trial hat or two later, and this is what we came up with. We're both pleased with how it came out - he's hardly taken it off. (Oh, and I knit this one in a leftover - from the blanket - skein of Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton. Softness on your head. Perfect.)
I've updated the PDF in the sidebar on the left to include the new sizing, which from what I'm getting - fits around 3-10 years. You can also get it right here.
