These are the first three hats I designed to sell in the new children's clothing store that is opening in August. I was experimenting with shape motifs and different ribbings. I think seed stitch as a ribbing is particularly attractive. I used Rowan Handknit DK because I loved all the color choices. And I thought it would be fun to give the hat designs names: first is Block, then Spot, then Tri-Top (like treetop, but with triangles!). I want to make some sweaters using the same motifs, but repeated differently. The next bunch of hats I knit will use stripes. That should be fun!
