One of my first posts, Puppy, I had a fun photo shoot with a hat I had knitted for a friend. Since then, I’ve knitted one more hat and sent them both off to their new owners. The second hat was for a baby boy named Oliver, who goes by Oli. I decided to try some more knitting in the round with this design, as well as incorporating colors and knitting a chain. I think the little design turned out adorable and I love it on Oli!
I also had to create some little designed cards to send with the hats. Each got a custom card that had a little logo design, custom colors, and custom message.
The chain on the top of the hat for Oli has inspired me to keep knitting those designs. One of my favorite knitters out there, Yokoo, uses these “tubes” to create gigantic yarn chains interlocked together. Something I’m working on is creating the long tubes but not interlocking them together. Rather, creating a dozen designs and meshing them all together to create a fat multi-colored scarf. This will be a great design for those San Franciscans this summer!
