Christmas hat for me moms

This was take 2 on my present (the first one turned out child-sized =x )
It’s supposed to be hearts but they’re kinda diamond shaped, which is ok too I guess… In hindsight, 4-4 ribbing probably wasn’t the best choice.:aww:

I’m sure she’ll love it anyway! It looks great!

That’s so cute. I can see the hearts :slight_smile:

Very cute :slight_smile:

I can see the hearts too - I think it looks pretty cool!

:happydance: It looks great!

She will love it and I can see the hearts too…have you blocked it yet? With colorwork a lot of times that will help “pop” the design out…

It’s very pretty. I’m sure she’ll be pleased.

nice job!!

You are so inventive! The hearts show up nicely. What you did with the decreases is interesting. Your mom will be happy with it, the hearts mean, “My son loves me”, and not everyone can say, “My son knit it for me.” She’ll be very proud.

Thank you all!
I understand blocking flat things, like scarves, but how do you do hats? Would I need something like a mannequin head for a mold?

Also, here’s the original hat that came out too small. I finished it and put it in the Brown Santa collection at work, so at least it won’t go to waste.

I think it is a [B][COLOR=Blue]great hat![/COLOR][/B] I kinda like the shape of the designs better than the usual heart shapes! Adds more interest. And I also like your ribbing modification! All in all, a very interesting hat!!!

[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]Love the hat… love the colours and I love 4X4 ribbing… Don’t worry, Hon, your Mama is going to love it!

woooo! i love them!!

Both are great, but I like the first one you made better, it can keep some lucky child warm this winter.

What is a “Brown Santa”?
