Ever since I packed up a lot of my handmade sweaters that don’t get worn because of fit issues, I’ve been sticking to little projects, like hats (and now socks). I made myself a hat, I made my nephew a hat, and because Doc declined a hat, I made this hat for my friend’s little boy. He’s the one who got a tiny owl sweater back when he was born, so I thought a return to that motif would be nice.


(Specs: I used this pattern in the kid size; yarn was Cascade superwash in my stash.)

Those owls get me every time. They’re so fun to make!
