unfortunately, it’s almost that time of the year. snow time. which means i’ve been on the hunt for an adorable winter hat for my little guy. and i found the most adorable knitted owl hat on pinterest
…and i was able to track down the pattern to diy-it.
i’ve been knitting for years now…it all started with a single six week class at jo-anns
that i took where we made a knitted purse. and i was hooked. i’ve made scarves, ipod cases, ponchos and even a sweater that is currently in pieces and parts. so i logged on, paid by $1.99 and got my owl hat pattern.
this was going to require me to tackle some new types of stitches…knitting in the round, using double-pointed needles…i will say that the outcome turned out a little bigger than i anticipated (as in, it doesn’t cover noah’s eyes, but it’s kinda too wide).
all i can share is the final piece…unfortunately, i can’t share the pattern here since i had to buy it (but i can give you the link…here
). and i can share progress photos of the hat….
the knitted hat. and using my cricut to cut a scalloped pattern for the eyes.
materials: white, orange and blue felt. the scalloped eye pattern cut out of paper.
the all important orange beak.
layered eyes with blue and white felt.
the final owl hat. a little big. but cute.
