When I first created this hat, my daughter was about eighteen months old. As you know yourselves, little hands are always busy and like to pull hats off, even though the temperature is below freezing outside. Thus, a solution came to mind - the hat needed ties! So I got creative, and this is how the hat came to be designed.
Now five years later, I still think of this hat as one of the most adorable and practical hats for toddlers, teens, and adults. I have reworked the pattern to add some improvements and extra sizes. As a result we have a hat suitable for the whole family!

My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects.
I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger!
I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down.
