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...
