Easy does it

Posted on: June 29, 2012

Nothing can be much easier than knitting round and round and coming out with the great stripes and fun rolled brim of this beanie.  Okay, I’ll admit it, when it gets to the top and those double-pointed needles it becomes a bit more challenging! I’ve learned over the years, though, that practice makes even those decreases easier.  I usually work in 100% cotton for summer- weight hats but I loved the blend of colors in this “microfiber” yarn and so have the customers.  It is also super soft for that newborn skin.

About Summer

I have been knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering since childhood. It is great fun to combine many of these activities in handcrafting hats and other apparel for wee ones. I'm delighted that you have found my site and hope you enjoy browsing through my latest creations.

Most of the hats are made with 100% cotton. Prices range from $25 to $35 depending on time required in making that design. I also custom design hats and other apparel for special occasions or to match the colors of your favorite team. Just let me know what you have in mind!
