Max’s Knitted Hat
I designed Max’s knitted hat for my Nephew Max. After seeing how happy he was in his new sweater I decided he needed a matching hat. After all, they do live in the cold windy midwest and we can’t have Max’s little ears getting cold, now can we? Using the same yarn and color I simply followed the basic design of the sweater for the hat. The first few rounds are in garter stitch and the body is worked in stockinette. As I was fairly sure he would, Max loves his knitted hat. Oh and yes…It totally brings out his gorgeous eyes even more. Take a quick peek at Max’s knitted sweater here: Max’s Knitted Sweater.
