This two hats use yarn Universal Yarn Uptown Worsted Tapestry in Yule color scheme.The one on the left was made using Elf's Hat by Tara Mercer. There wasn't quite enough of the skein for two elf hats so the second one is a simple basic hat.

I have started working on knitting hats for several of the grand-nieces/nephews and maybe some of the nieces/nephews too. These two are for grand-nieces. The one with the pink crocheted rose is the Aviatrix hat. The pattern is Aviatrix hat by Justine Turner. The white yarn is Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash. The pink yarn is left over Malabrigo Yarn Lace from the swirl jacket I knit a few years back.

These three hats will be added to others for a total of eleven to be sent to Knitting for Noggins. I have sent them other hats in the past. The first two here were made from left over yarns from other projects.
This blue and white hat was made from Red Heart yarn as a "mock up" for a hat I will be making for my husband using wool yarn. I wanted to get the white and blue areas the correct widths per his specifications. Also I noticed that when the white ribbing is turned up there is a blue line so when I knit his I will decrease the ribbing by one row and add a row of stockinette stitch.
