This hat gets its name from the front post stitches running down the hat, and the color stripes running around the hat. The bottom of the hat is made in a front post/back post rib stitch, and can be folded up for a shorter hat, left down for a warm long hat, or just the front folded up so the sides and back still keep your ears and neck warm. The texture of this hat creates a fun look for any age.

Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
