Ravelry Favorites: Sweet Hat Edition

I've been knitting like a fiend all summer long, I just haven't said too much about it. 

My sister-in-law is expecting a baby this December, and I think I'm the only one in the family who knits. This means I have a few months to get my ass in gear and knit as furiously as I can for the little one.

Of course, I burn out every now and again and have to pause to finish a project that I had once started...and to browse the lovely, lovely things on Ravelry that I intend to share with you now!

Nomadic Nights Slouch by Holly Priestley
I fell in love with this slouch as soon as I stumbled on it. I love the slouch slash bonnet style, and of course the long tassels give it some character. I just have to dig through my stash to see what yarns I have that I can substitute in.

As far as tams go, this is a pretty nice one. Colorful, entrelac knitting lends  for a quick and interesting project. I'd be tempted to mod it into a slouch. The yarn pictured is Mille Colori by Lang Yarns.

Speaking of entrelac tams, I can't pass up posting this here. It's been in my favorites forever, and I do plan on making the same thing in Mini Mochi... when I come across some. I refuse to go out of my way for it!

Chevron Love Hat by Julia Vesper
Maybe I'm just a sucker for colorful things, but the chevron and the bucket nature of this hat thrills me, even if it would look like shit on my skull.

Bus Hat by Kylie McDonnell-Wade
I knit this hat for my husband Chris last winter with alpaca wool from Red Comb Vintage. If you ever get a chance to score some of her own two alpaca's fibers, you really ought to. The yarn made this hat perfect, but I suspect you could do the same with your fibers if you're so inclined. Wonderful pattern.

Maple Leaves Hat by Wooly Bear Hand Knits
I've been holding this one in my favorites for a really long time, too. I really love the colors and design. I think I just may break down and knit one for the winter season this year!
