Below is the first batch of hats that I've been working on this fall!
The first one is not too exciting--a ski mask for my husband who is outside a lot and hates cold weather. As usual, I modified a pattern--the helmet liner from Michael's.
This next one is Ms. Fish (note her pink lipstick), the hat that started the animal hat craze for me. I modified the fish hat from knitty.com because some things on the original weren't quite true to life!
And finally, the infamous (or not?) lion-eating-your-head hat:
Still to come are the cat hat, the rabbit hat, and another ski mask for my nephew.
One thing's certain: I'm learning a lot--color work, short row shaping, I-cord, stranded knitting, etc. etc.
Thanks for looking!
