Project Description: These hats are a custom mother/child order for my etsy shop. My customer, Tamera, requested pilot hats in both baby and adult sizes; over course, I was more than happy to oblige!
I hadn't made a pilot hat before, and the pattern I found needed severe tweaking for both worsted weight yarn and an adult head circumference. I spent the better part of an evening figuring out the math and making swatches until it just worked! I'm pleased with myself - it was actually quite easy and I'll be able to adjust the hat for a variety of sizes now. Made-to-order pilot hats, anyone?
Yarn Used: I used three yarns to accomplish this fun zig-zag look:
Baby Pilot Hat Modified by Gerda Porter
- Fritzy ate a foil candy wrapper the other day, so Hubby and I kept a less-than-entertaining vigil for the next 24 hours to make sure he was okay.
- I've started getting into baking doggy cookies, which I love because I've always enjoyed baking, but never kept up because I didn't want to eat everything myself - so now I can just make my dog fat! (Not really).
- I can't believe Easter is this coming weekend considering we still keep getting snowed on
- I'm traveling to San Francisco in just over a week for a marketing conference/a little girl time at some delicious wineries. I'm trying to figure out which project to take on the plane with me and might leave it up to a vote by my loyal readers :)
Hope you're all having a great week and have a lot of spring projects to work on!
