I am back with the second installment in my 'things for boys' series (you can read part 1 here). It's time for crochet hats! I picked three designs, all pre-approved by Alexander before I started to crochet. Lucky I have an adorable little boy who makes the cutest model (when he cooperates)!
The first design is an aviator hat in gorgeous chunky beige wool with cream trim and wood button detail. The pattern is by Beezy Mom's Creations on Etsy.
The second hat is a pretty simple but pretty cool pattern that I found on Ravelry. It's called 'Brainwaves Beanie' and it's by Playin' Hooky Designs. He looks so grown up in this one!
With two 'sensible' hats, I wanted the third one to be 'fun', so I started looking through Etsy for some cool animal designs. I knew I had found 'the one' when I came across this pattern - a pirate owl! Alexander's squealy excitement when he saw the picture confirmed my choice. FUNKY!
I know this post is supposed to be about boys' things - but who says only boys can be pirates?! See, my little girl here rocks her own pirate owl hat. You can probably imagine the reactions we get when we take them out wearing these hats.
Back soon with the third and final installment in the series: personalised bunting for boys. See you soon!
PS - the hats are available for purchase in my Etsy store, with worldwide shipping.
