These hats were designed to coordinate with the hoodies which Uncle Zion gave to the girls, in honor of Sophie’s birthday.
After I finished Sophie’s, Dan pointed out that they reminded him of antique football helmets.
Now Kinsley calls it “her football helmet”…
Both girls really wanted The Boy to have a matching hat, but Kinsley was perplexed by the flower… “He can’t have a flower, Mama, cause he’s a boy…” So, this is what we came up with.
Kinsley’s hat (since she needed a size bigger) was the Cute Kid’s Earflap Hat, but with the same floral accent. I didn’t do the gauge swatch on this, and her hat is borderline too small. I may go ahead and make a duplicate in the next size up (I did the size 2-4 pattern).
The Boy’s hat was the SLK Baby Hat pattern. His hat has more of a mushroom shape than the pattern depicts, and the reason for this is that I got scared about how large it was turning out, and decreased a few rounds…
Anyway… we’ll be cheering the team in style, this year!
