going hatty

You're not crazy--you have seen this hat before. It's Luuk, which has become my go-to kid and baby hat pattern. It's free, fast, easy and fun. My favorite part is the bobble on top! Adorbs! These were knit earlier this month, when our entire family was afflicted with a gnarly new-school-year cold that was making the rounds across Starkville. I'm amazed I was even able to finish these hats, considering how bad it wiped us out. The top hat is for my daughter (knit from Lion Brand Amazing, a color-changing acrylic) and the bottom for my son (knit from Miss Babs Yummy Worsted in the "forest afternoon" colorway). I feel somewhat "eh" about the hat in Miss Babs. I loved the yarn, but in this pattern it looks funky. I love this hat so much better in yarns with a halo (or fuzz!) to them like the Lion Brand.  I have more Lion Brand Amazing stashed in "boyish" colors, so I may eventually make a new one and donate this one to charity. Or not. We'll see ...

  1. I think the girly hat is amazing. I would wear that. I have some Lion Brand Amazing hiding in my stash somewhere, so that may happen. Thanks for sharing this great pattern.

    1. YES! You should totally make one. And the pattern includes adult sizes too! :-D

  2. I think it just looks better in a striping effect yarn, not a variegated. But they are both cute.

    1. Yup, that's exactly how I feel! And the squishy merino variegated makes a more balloonish shape ... it's strange in person. But warm!
