Since most knitters seem to prefer to knit than purl, we designed an owl hat that is knit in circular from the inside out! We created our kit with Swans Island Yarn, and we are offering it at a great price because we love it and want to share the love! This is a great weight for babies and toddlers, and combined with super soft feel of this yarn, it can be worn on cool summer nights and air conditioned spaces.
Each kit will make two hats in either the baby or toddler size. The pattern calls for using a 16"- #5 circular needle (and double pointed needles for crown), or size to get a gauge of 5.5 sts per inch. The pattern also includes directions to make a child size hat in worsted weight yarn.
Each kit has a retail value of more than $34 and contains:
- One skein (270 yards/100 grams) of Swans Island Ecowash dk weight yarn. This is a certified organic Merino yarn that is machine washable – ideal for children’s wear and baby gifts because it is so soft. This squishy hand-dyed yarn is treated with Ecowash®, an organic enzyme that prevents felting.
- Four button eyes
- Edgecomb Owl Hat pattern
Our model is knit in Edgecomb grey. If you would prefer just the pattern, it can be purchase on Ravelry. We are offering an Add-on Kit for $3.50 (includes color pattern and eyes) with the purchase of any dk or worsted weight yarn.
NOTE: We have one kit left in curry OR pewter. It is listed as curry, but please let us know if you would like us to substitute the pewter skein of yarn in the gift message section at checkout.
This is a sweet hat, a simple, easy knit...and an adorable hat when finished! Once again, thank you
I bought 2 kits as presents for seasoned knitters in their 50s: 1 being my daughter and 1 my niece. They were both very excited about them as they have friends having babies. My mother used to knit her grandchildren( my children, niece, etc) sweaters with owls on the yokes. You may use my name if you wish.
