Aviatrixes

Baby hats! I’ve been indulging in make some quick on and off the needle baby hats in between working on my tunic length fingering weight cardigan. I’ve finished 3 Aviatrix hats recently plus I made another Quynn (the same as the last but the smallest size). All three are Drops Karisma which is a DK weight yarn. The brown and blue are both the smallest size (one of these is going to be a gift for sure) and the purple is the second size. I’ve made this hat before, both the older two wore them a lot.

The hat is made in sections of short rows with earflaps added at the end with a strap. They stay on really well and the fabric is super stretchy so they fit for a long time.

FO: Aviatrix for J

When I was working on the Horseshoe sweater there were some parts where I needed the instructions in front of me (shaping mostly). As I own I physical book for the pattern, this meant needing the open book plus the knitting plus (frequently) a sleeping baby all competing for space in my lap. Rather than struggling with that I started a new project to get me through naptimes.

This is to be a gift for a friend who’s due in October. It’s just a wee hat made from super soft leftovers from a gift set my Mum knitted for Wee Man before he was born. I’ve made Aviatrix twice before – once for Hobbit and then again for Wee Man. It’s super quick and super effective in it’s simplicity.
