I’m blaming all the knitted gifts for Christmas this year on Dr Smak, @DrCris, and @Geek2Nurse who have encouraged my knitting. The other reason is there are so many nieces and nephews who range from 6 months of age to 35 years of age.
This hat and fingerless gloves were given to my 14 yo niece who loves to text. The hat is made using the pattern Mondo Cable Cap by Bonne Marie Burns and Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends yarn. The gloves are made using the pattern Fishtail wristwarmers by Alexandra Brinck and Lion Brand Sock-Ease yarn.
I made two of these hats, one red and one blue, for two brothers. The pattern is Herdwick Dell Scarf and Hat by Lion Brand Yarn. It is written to be done flat and seamed. I did it in the round so I didn’t have a seam.
I made six of these hats in different colors and sizes for several nephews (ages 6 to 24). It uses the pattern Cross Skull Cap by Kimberly Nicdao Reynolds. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Solids & Heathers.
Merry Christmas to you all!
