November 2011

Inspired by Brooklyn Tweed's version, and completely ripping off his idea of using a self striping yarn rather than stripes of lots of different colours of solids, this was originally made to match this jacket

Of course, they turned out completely different sizes and were never worn together. In fact, this hat had been languishing in a drawer for months, and it was only in getting George's knitwear drawer ready for the winter that I rediscovered it. It's more or less a perfect fit just now.

My mother in law has a real paranoia about babies getting ear infections (or that's how it seems to me, because it's never happened to George yet) and so wholeheartedly approves of hats which cover the ears. Being able to tie them on is also a plus, for obvious reasons.

This is a freebie patten, made with yarn which I had stashed anyway, so it basically cost me nothing. It's not machine washable, but I don't think that matters so much with hats as with other baby clothes. He would have to be going some to get this dirty.
