While I was knitting Sister Suzy's ponytail hat and mitts my sister was talking to Tiffany, one of her co-workers, about it and asks if I would knit a hat. I said, yes, find a pattern and some yarn. So the pattern my sister found was the Goodie Bag Hat by Cheryl Oberle on Ravelry.
The next hat was Dominic's. This kid loves purple so to get a hat that nobody would think he was wearing a little girl's hat I found Robot Hat by Jane Sharp on Ravelry
Then I knit Riley's. Mandie Harrington calls the pattern Swirl Hat. I put a ponytail hole in this one at 2 1/2 inches because Riley doesn't like her hair pulled up too high as it gives her a headache.
They have a little girl that stays with them off-n-on so I knit Maddie a hat too. I used In-Between Seasons Hat by Elena Nodel from Ravelry.
Last but not least was Josh's hat. I originally was going to knit a Ribbed Watchman's Hat by Channah Koppel I found on Ravelry but my sister saw it and ask if I was knitting a balaclava. I said no, she said a balaclava would be a better choice because he rides. Okay, but I'm not sure I have enough yarn.
Easy Balaclava by Nanette Blanchard again. I lengthened the neck portion by two inches as most people were noting that the neck was too short for most men. Then I lengthened the top by an inch to make sure the top of the opening covered the forehead. I had maybe 2 yards of yarn left after I finished the crown.
I kept the pattern for the Watchman's Hat because I think it is an excellent pattern for a male hat, which is long enough to fold for extra warmth around the ears.
This is part of the knitting that interrupted the knitting of the feather-n-fan afghan.
I hope everyone is having a good day.
