Further Studies in HATS: Candy Button edition!

If you’ve been reading along with me for a bit, you’ll know that I am clueless about hats. I think it’s mostly because I don’t wear them, so I don’t know how they are supposed to fit, how big they are supposed to be, etc.

I made a hat that fit me, and then when Manda put it on, it was waaay too big, and I think her head is more the average size than mine. Hairy’s is too big, too, for a ladies’ hat. I need a head mold of Manda’s noggin!!!!

Anyway, a friend of one of my former co-workers emailed me looking for a nice gift for a young 11 year old friend of hers getting chemotherapy. I had my work schedule mapped out down to the day until October 13th to get my book and samples done, but I could just NOT say no!!!

The hat is pretty simple, but I think it turned out pretty sweet. I just hope it fits!!! I found a different hat pattern that suggested an 18 inch circumference for younger girls, so that is what I went with. Fingers crossed!!!

    Your scarf and hat looks really good. But since you say your not sure about hats….I saw this hat pattern on lion brand – http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90380AD.html – I haven’t made it yet, but it looks really cute with a great sort of modern shape (not old fashioned/grandma-ey like a lot of others). I’m going to give it a try one day – and I know you can adapt it like crazy and do amazing things
