No hat lovin

>> Thursday, January 6, 2011

I wish my kids loved wearing hats.  I love to knit them hats.  I love how fast they are and how quickly they are finished.  But no matter how many I knit or how much input they have on color and type they just don't get worn.  "My head is itchy" is all I hear and off comes the hat.  I have seen some tutorials for lining a knit hat with fleece which is on my to do list but until then here is one solution for my daughter. 

A headband.  Which at least will get worn. 

Something that is at least covering her ears.  Warm and soft.  Do you notice how still these shots are?  All I heard was.....when can I run?  I held her off as long as I could so I only got a few shots before she was off around the yard.

Of course it is pink.  This girl was born loving pink....I swear it wasn't me. 

A very quick knit.  Pattern can be found here (free).  I just used some scrap yarn from something and followed the pattern.  The best part is that the center lace pattern makes it easy to size for any head.  Just sew a button on one end and use any part of the lace as the buttonhole.  So maybe instead of my daughter raiding her mommy's closet I can go raid hers :)

That headband looks like plane knitting to me!

Looks like it surely is something worth borrowing from little miss. Very cute! Don't know how I would feel if my gang didn't like wearing hats. I'll count myself lucky that they do. :)

Oh, that is the sort of thing I love. I don't really love a hat either. And it is so cute with pigtails.
