Silky Hat for my Boy

I made this hat for my little boy ages ago, I think I finished it at the end of June. It’s made from a really nice, smooth silk yarn that I bought last year somewhere (I honestly can’t remember where, sorry). All I know is that it’s lovely and soft and keeps Luke’s head cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold.

It’s a pattern that I always go back to from Garnstudio. It’s a joy to knit this hat, as it’s a really straight forward pattern that practically knits itself.

I particularly love the detail the knitting creates, like the pointed front that goes onto the forehead of the little munchkin wearing it. It actually reminds me of a hat I used to wear when I was little (my Mum kept it and gave it to me when she found out I was having a baby, but it’s more of a girly hat, so it might have to wait to be worn!).

And I can hear you asking, where’s a picture of the hat being worn??? You didn’t think I was going to withhold one, did you? Here’s Luke wearing his new silky hat when it was first finished.

And here’s a more recent picture, taken about two weeks ago.
