During the past year I knit several hats that were deliberately made for Knitting for Noggins or just weren't gifted to friends/family. These are some I have not featured in prior posts like the Illilouette Hat. I sent them a total of nine hats this time. This first one was knit using the pattern Sirle by Suvi Simola. The yarn is Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio DK in the color Lauraville.
I actually gave the larger of the two (a slouch version) in this next photo to a friend. The smaller one I donated. The pattern is Milanese Lace Topper by tante ehm. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease in the color Heather.
This one was made using left over yarns. The pattern is based on the Messy Bun Hat II by Isela Phelps but no opening was left at the top.

I have a friend going to Washington DC to participate in the Women's March on Washington. She is meeting a few of her friends there who are also participating in the march. There is a group (Pussy Hat Project) encouraging the knitting/wearing of pussy hats. I knit three hats for my friend to take with her. I knit all of them using the pattern KitKat Hat by Andre Sue. I modified the body on hats the first and third hats. This first one used the Milanese Lace Topper for the body. The yarn is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in raspberry.
This second hat was knit using Loops & Threads Facets yarn in the color ruby.
For the third hat I just continued the ribbing in the center of the front and back. The yarn is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in rose.here (both for knitting and crocheting).

I knit this sweater for a friend's dog who feels the winter cold in his old bones. It was knit using the pattern The Ozzie large dog sweater by Jenna Greer. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in two colors (527 Abalone and 155 obsidian).
