The AM hat

Another initials hat is off the needles with a leather tag placed in the front. This time after trying different options, I decided to put the label horizontally on the hat.

The hat is knitted in Drops Lima on 4mm needles. Approximately 70g disappeared from my Lima stash, including the pom pom. I used the “Initials tag hat” pattern, and added a few cm more before I began decreasing.

Usually I am the photographer in the house. I am used to stay behind the camera. This weekend however, I had to convince (… bribe) my daughter to take photos. She was a very professional bargainer and refused to take photos unless I made funny faces. So here I am, making funny faces. Hello to you all!
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

Next week I’ll be posting a tutorial on how to make the leather tag. In the meantime I’ll be knitting another hat and enjoying a cup of very warm tea (because it’s freezing here this week).

Welcome back next week!


  1. Heehee! The photos are fab AM! Both you and your daughter - looks like lots of a laughs were had taking them. The hat is also fab....I might just have to look out some of my own Lima to do it. We finally have a proper knitting shop in Dundee and they are stocking some Drops yarn. I got some Drops You #3 which is gorgeous. In even more exciting news another proper yarn store is due to open early next month.

    Happy January. I hope it warms up soon.

    1. Yes we had fun. And she is so fun to be with these days. She has so many thoughts about so many things.

      Please let me know if you want Lima Diane, I can send you any colour you want.

  2. Oh...typed up a big comment and I am not sure if I managed to post it. So here we go again ;-)

    Love the photos - looks like lots of fun was had taking the pictures - you both look great and your new hat is fab. I might need to look out my stock of Lima.
