Mink Knitted Helmet Hat & Passenger Cowl

I’m finally ready to share two of my latest knitting projects, a knitted “Helmet Hat” from a Vogue Knitting pattern and a knitted “Backseat Passenger Cowl” from a free Amy Castillo pattern on Ravelry.
Mink Knitted Helmet Hat & Passenger Cowl

Helmet Hat

I used size 8 circular knitting needles and 1 skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Mink Brown.

I followed the pattern as written, but modified the side pieces slightly. As the pattern was written, I thought they would be too tall and floppy.

Here’s what I did:

After the textured rib pattern repeat, work row 1 again.

Next row: K1, p2 *ssk, p2* repeat from * to *, end with k1. 25 stitches total.

Next row: P1, k2tog, *p1, k2tog* repeat from * to *, end with p1. 17 stitches total. Bind off.

Passenger Cowl

I used size 8 circular needles and 2 skeins of Lion Bran Wool-Ease in Mink Brown.

I followed the pattern as written except for 2 minor things: I casted on 144 stitches instead of 157 and I added 1 additional knit & purl round repeat.

I love how this pattern is reversible! Each side has a different look due to the number of purl stitches. One is a bit chunkier.

Finished Hat from Solar-Dyed Yarn Project

Hi everyone! I wanted to share these photos of my finished project. After completing my solar dyed yarn project, I searched Ravelry for an interesting pattern to use my new yarn. I chose the free knitted hat pattern ‘Felicity‘ . I did make a few changes – I completed fewer increases and made the hat slightly shorter overall. I’m happy with the results. What do you think?

“Howdy” Newborn Cowboy Hat and Boots

I recently had the privilege to make a custom-ordered cowboy hat and boots for a local client. I think they are too adorable, and I wanted to share them with you all. My favorite part of this set is the braided suede hat band – it just makes the hat look so authentic.

I would be happy to make a similar hat and boots for a special boy or girl in your life. Just contact me for more info and pricing. I can make similar items for newborns and toddlers.
