I'm still not knitting/crocheting much so here's a little pre-blog flashback of my oldest and some hats I had made for him.
Another hat I made for him I loved SO much. It's a vintage pattern, from Patons' Book 98, "Family Headwear and Scarves by Beehive". There are some classics in this book. The book was reprinted in 2001 using more "modern" yarns (I don't ever recall seeing Patons Canadiana Superwash Wool!), and one size instead of the DK yarn and three sizes that are in the original book (date unknown). I think there must have been a printing in between the original and the 2001 booklet, because the models do NOT look like 2001! LOL.
The hat is called the "Ali Baba" and I challenge you to not smile!
It's a little small on my adult wig head but too big on my 6month baby head.
