Easy Winter Hat - the boy version

Last week, when I posted the Easy Winter Hat Tutorial, I mentioned my son had requested a hat too. So I had to comply.






I followed my own pattern and used a very similar yarn, in boy colors. Originally my son wanted the pompom in green, but I couldn't find yarn to match, so we compromised on blue instead (with the promise that I will search for green yarn and make him a green hat next year).





And in case you're wondering, yes, I did make a matching scarf. I just skipped the pompoms in both ends because I thought they looked too girly, and opted for just the matching solid blue stripes. 



This knitted hat/scarfs thing is turning out to be a never ending story. It started with the hats I made for my daughter's dolls, just to get back into the habit of knitting, then my daughter wanted  some for herself and I posted them along with the tutorial. Now I'm posting the ones I made for my son. The end? Not really. Now my husband wants a scarf too. In black or very dark grey. Maybe I should just open a store and start taking orders...

Enjoy,

  2. Hahahaha, that's so funny that hubby wants one too now. I love the blue one (I've never been a big fan of pink) so that's the one I would choose to wear. You'll have to make yourself one after all this.

    1. I have bought yarn to make a scarf for me too. But I'm guessing that by the time I get to even start it, it will be spring already and too warm to wear it, LOL

  5. great pattern love the way your crochet boy hat looks! the matching scarf is perfect too, with the solid strip coordinated with the hat (poms are probably a bit girly). I am sure he loves it!

    1. Maybe next winter though, because I have a feeling I will not have time to finish it before spring, though ;)
