Triangle Hat

Quite some time ago, I promised my son a Triangle Hat.

Shy? I don't think so.

He was quite taken with the idea, but it took me some time to get started.

In May we flew out to Lake Eyre. With 6 hours of flights in a (very) small plane I cast on with some rather squooshy dk I found in a little store outside of Christchurch NZ.

The hat was based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's three cornered tam, found in the Knitter's Almanac. The hat starts with a garter stitch band, then starts increasing at three points, before decreasing again at the same three points.

Ready, set, GO!

There was a 'bit' of ripping out of stitches after I realised that the measurements given were for an adult sized hat. Scaled down, the knitting progressed a lot quicker.

The finished item was warmly received, and has been worn often.

New hat AND new gumboots. What more could a little boy want?

I love that my little boy is so willing to wear what his mum makes him. I'll be sorry to see the day when he decides he's too cool to wear a triangle hat.
