Hat Knitting Pattern and Pics

Friday!

Busy week but its Friday and I am so looking forward to the weekend. Not that we have anything special planned but just because it IS the weekend.

I have been busy doing different projects and because I seem to have several different things on the go I am itchin' to do some knittin'. Dawn is in the midst of knitting a hat and she does wonderful knitting and I told her I would send her this pattern I have. Its simple and its quick and it looks nice too!

I am repeating the pattern and the pics of the hats I made a couple of years ago. You might want to give them a try too. If you do please do let me know and if you have pics I would like to show them. There is also a pattern for a scarf which I haven't made but it could be matching and fun!

The "fur" headbands are great and they really keep you warm. I love mine. I sell them and plan to put some in my Etsy store.

Oh, I love the hats and fur bands. You are so creative. I can't knit. I can barely sew a straight line. Very nice. I bet they are warm too in your winters. Today we are 60 degrees. Last week we were in single digits. Now, you enjoy that weekend.

Thanks for the pattern Judi. I will add it to my knitting files. It looks like a fun hat. I like the headband idea too. I appreciate you taking the time to post it. I have such a long list of projects but I will give this one a try :)

take care,
