Ms.Aadya requested this hat yesterday,for her to wear to the Teddy Bear picnic at School today.She lovedddddddd it..and didn’t take it off all day.

She picked out a fancy yarn,from my yarn chest and asked me if I could please make a hat for her,that would cover her ears.This is what I love about being able to knit/crochet-I can make things as I like and don’t have to settle for something,I don’t like.

This beanie is slightly longer than most,just because,I needed it to cover her ears..we are so done,with ear-infections.

For this hat,I used:

Yarn- Moda fashion yarn

Hook- 4.00mm

Pattern-I just improvised as I went.I started with –

Ch4,sl st to form ring.

Ch2,10 Dc in the ring.

Ch2,2 Dc in each each DC,all around.

Ch2,DC in first DC,2DC in next DC,all around-This row is repeated till the hat fits the head.-I think two or three more rounds. I was checking it on her head.Once you get the desired circumference,

Ch2,DC on each DC all around- 3 more times,till you get the desired height.

Ch1,Sc all around.finish and weave in ends.

Decorate with a motiff of your choice.I used this tutorial from Applehead’s blog.

I wasn’t very sure about using this color for a kids beanie..but I like the way,its come out!

A Durango for me..

Winter is here..and I hate the greys it brings with it…grey skies,grey coats,grey moods.
I have decided to bring in color in my life this winter…This hat is the first step.
When I made the Durango hat for my friend,Devi..I loved it.I wanted to make one for myself..but I was so tired of making the orders,that I didn’t get around to it.One of my goals this year is to knit more for my family and myself.I will still do a few orders..but somehow,it just doesn’t work out alright for me.The yarn too expensive,me too shy to ask for the right price or any money at all.This year I have decided to take orders only if when yarn is provided.Lets see how long,I can keep it up.
Anyway,here’s the hat,that this post is about-

I am very happy with the finish of this one.Now all I need is a matching scarf..:)
