Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Earflap Hats again

This one is Knitpicks Merino Style in an awful yellow. All I had handy for practice. I added the rows of reverse stockinette stitch. Did the ear flaps in the same pattern. It still looks shallow. This time I knitted the hat then picked up the stitches for the flaps and knit down to the icord.
The socks are Fearless Fibers Meadow. A rather violent green and yellow. 40 stitches around measures to about 4 1/2 inches. The length is 2 1/2 inches from cuff to heel. The foot measures about 3 inches with a round toe. I just did a simple 3 x 1 ribbing on the leg. Very stretchy. I am going to send the hat off to Afghans for Afghans and asked them what they think.

The bright yellow and green is perfect for babies. I've seen baby hats in all shapes and sizes. I even remember receiving one very large hat in particular, labeled "3 mos", and wondering what they were smoking when they thought it would fit a 3 month old baby. The problem I had with most baby hats is that they tended to fall off.
