Stash Hats

I don't know what else to call these so until I think of a better name I'll just call them Stash Hats! I'm having fun going through my stash and using up yarn to make baby hats. Isn't this one cute…


and this one is made out Twinkley's heavenly Soft Chunky


Just love 'em!

What I did was make a little swatch with the yarn I wanted to use, then I got out my trusty Ann Budd book, The Knitter's Handy Book Of Patterns, looked up my gauge and casted on the number that they recommend for the size hat I wanted. If you don't have this book I recommend it, it's IS very Handy!

Love the colors in that first hat, so sweet, and the chunky one, awww, it's so cute, looks tiny too :)
Do you have recipients in mind, or will the be put in the 'gift' box?

These are too cute! Love the colors in the first one! You know that I haven't made it over to the knit shop for a class! It's bordering ridiculous. My twelve year old taught herself (when she was eight)... she thinks I'm a major moron.

That book should be a requirement. Love them both but especially that chunky white hat. There is something about that chunky yarn on a small scale that looks so good. Hope you are well.
Your name came up in a podcast interview I did for the Yarn Thing podcast. Kinda fun!

Love both of those but the white one is my fav. I can just picture that cute baby wearing it. And the name...perfect, don't change it.
Thanks for the book recommendation. I hadn't heard of that one.

any baby who gets to wear these cute hats is a VERY lucky baby indeed!

that striped hat is so playful, and the white one looks very classic.

Very cute! I've been thinking about getting that book, you've just given me one more reason to!

Great hats -- the stripey one is just a perfect balance of colors & textures!! And the white...well, white is simple, classic & beautiful (not to mention cozy!).
