Hat Pattern: Sherri

Ok, this is going to be short and sweet today guys. No rambling on and on about life crap.

My friend Sherri will be turning 29 Saturday and she's been wanting me to make her a hat so I did just that in her favorite color, purple. I looked and looked for the "perfect" hat and simply couldn't find what I was looking for. I don't know, I kind of have an obsession with trying to figure out how to make things on my own anyway. Last night I sat down with some yarn and come up with this pattern. It is so super easy, and I think it turned out really cute so I just had to share it with you! And now the pattern....

  3. Really cute hat, thanks for sharing it with us.

  4. Thanks Guys! I am so glad y'all like it. I agree, it does look like hearts, even in person. The pic doesn' do justice to the colors though. It is like a plum with lavender (not white, as it looks in the pic)as the contrasting color.
    Red is my favorite color, and had I been making it for me, that is probably what color it would have been.
    Happy Knitting Y'all!

    That is so cute.
    We are heading into winter so I am going to make a few of these.

  9. Way cool Lynda!
    I made this one in a couple of evenings and I wasn't diligent about sitting down for long periods of time either, so it is a really quick knit. I'd love to see pics of how they turn out!!!
    Happy Knittin'!
