Fibers on Friday: Hat Shaped Hats

"In walked a man in the shape of a man, wearing a hat shaped....HAT!"

All I've been working on this week is hats for my family. You may recall last week, I had to totally rip out one hat and start over. If only I was smart enough to realize I could have kept it for a dollie's hat, like Elise suggested....oh well.

Nevertheless, I got two (almost three) hats completed!

The "Flapper Style" is a pattern called "poppy". I used an inexpensive wool yarn from AC Moore. The hat knits up fast! It's a fun, easy pattern and as you can see, it's super adorable!

My husband's hat is just a simple beanie knit in the round using Crazy Aunt Purl's calculations. Plus some of my own modifications, like a ribbed edging.

Now, I'll work on a hat for ME! Stay tuned.


  1. Ohhhhhhh, sa-WEEEEET Bethy! LOOK at your beautiful people! These picts are so breathtaking, I can't believe you didn't save them for "wordless Wednesday!" But, how could you possibly wait and deprive us of the cuteness! I'm so glad you didn't.. What satisfaction you must be enjoying about now! CONGRATULATIONS, sweetie pie! THESE rock!

  2. Look at you go girl! You are a knitting fool! I love the hats....great job. where is yours?
