Keep Warm-- Valentines Hat

I thought I would pop in today to show off a few 'heart themed' knit creations. Of course-- they're hats! I ended up taking my own advice and appliqueing a few hearts on this ear flap hat for my daughter.

It ended up looking really sweet in this pink bulky yarn. I simply followed the crochet heart tutorial and used the magic hand applique stitch with a sewing needle and sewing thread.

I also attempted fair isle for the first time! I have to admit I fell in love with this hat. Since each red stitch is just a simple knit stitch, it looks like the hat is dotted with tiny hearts.

I used a variegated yarn so the 'hearts' fade from dark red to light purple. Perfect for Valentines Day-- I need to make one for myself. See you back here on Wednesday!
