After my previous attempt to knit a hat for my husband, I wanted to do something different for his manly hat. His coat is grey and orange, and I happened to have both colors left in my yarn stash. I don’t like knitting two of the same item. It becomes monotonous for me. I wanted something a little different, so I modified the pattern I had previously used to make this that. I’m happy to say it fits him much better.
I’ve always loved the cute little berry hats for babies and toddlers, but not having any mad knitting skills, they were beyond my grasp. Now that I knit, I could finally make one while knitting hats for the holidays. My toddler loves her hat and matching mittens. When she outgrows it, I may make a strawberry hat for my strawberry loving girl.
