Summer Hats

Hats

I finished Olivia's hat (WIP here)...finally.  I'm not even sure how many times I ripped it apart and started again, but in the end I realized that the pattern as written fit the girls (smaller yarn, smaller hook obviously made a difference).  The second time was much easier (thank goodness the girls have similar head sizes) and that was good because EJ was very anxious for her own hat.  I love that they have the same hat but that they look different because of the different yarn.  Liv likes to wear hers down and EJ likes a rolled brim.  I like that I used cotton, so they will be washable as the girls trash them this summer!

Patons Grace yarn in Lotus and Lavender
I used a G hook and made the adult-sized pattern as written.

Yikes, sorry about the multiple-frogs---I hate starting a project like that. But these were worth it, they look gorgeous and Grace is such a nice yarn, they must be lovely to wear.

Hard to say what's cuter - the hats or the models. Ok, the models win :).

You did an excellent job with their hats. judging by the pictures of the lovely girls, they're thrilled.

I like rolling my slouchy hats too, my daughter likes to keep hers down.
