|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||Sport (5 ply)|
|Sizing||Petite, Plus-sized, Boys, Girls, Children, Other, Women, Unisex|
What materials did you use? Lion Brand Homespun. Color: Rococo. I chose this because it is very soft and since these hats are for kids I also felt it was important that they be easily washable.
What are you most proud of? These were made for a family that was welcoming a new baby. The bigger ones are the "big sister gifts" but they did not know if the little one would be a boy or a girl. You can probably tell from this picture the littlest one is a girl too. I also had a cute little brown bear head applique that I could have substituted for the flower if the youngest had been a boy. Also the band and flower on the bigger hats are held on with the buttons so they could also be made with interchangeable colors. The button color is slightly different to quickly figure out which hat belongs to which girl since they are close to the same size.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Here is the pattern: http://vallieskids.blogspot.com/2010/04/quickly-brimmed.html The strap and flower on the bigger hats are attached with the buttons so they can be easily changed for color or taken off. The slightly different color buttons on the hats are to help the girls identify their own (they are slightly different sizes). Everything on the infant hat is securely attached (no choking hazards). The flower is made with sparkly worsted weight yarn. The tutorial is here. (I stopped after the first two layers of this flower to keep it the size I wanted.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6unzzm3_xG8
