Easiest Customer

Posted by 2ton Inspired on January 22, 2008

Word on the street is my nephew diggs his Transformers Hat. His mom reported that he was all about the hat when they returned from their trip to Vietnam. I have to admit that after seeing him in it last weekend I’m extra happy that he likes it and that it’s super warm for our Minnesota winters.

Warm enough that his mom has requested a similar hat for her youngest son (double knitted with ear flaps). Wanting another happy customer I asked her what color or any decorative patterns, etc etc that he might like. She seemed unsure, which should be the case because he’s not quite old enough to express a taste in color. Something neutral that can be worn with different colors was the final answer.

My initial thought was, this is going to be a quick and easy project! But the more I thought about it the more difficult it sounded. I want it to be not only interesting to make but interesting to look at as well. Being given all the creative power makes it hard!

For a solid color I’m thinking maybe a cabled hat on one side and regular ss on the other. I’ve been eying Yarn Harlots Unoriginal Hat for awhile now but I’m not sure I have the right yarn for it. canKNITian’s Helping Hat is another on my list. I like the red one with half cables and ribbed.

Otherwise I could make a stripy Kim’s Hat (from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) like the one pictured over there –> using yarn from my stash.

I would have liked to do a motif on it but I can’t seem to think of one that fits an (almost) 2 year old boy. Any ideas would be appreciated!!
