Just thought I'd do a quick post about this hat I made for my boy Mr Leafy (as his sister calls him). If you are like me, and can do only basic stitch and can't read a knitting pattern (I think this side of my brain is defunct/missing?) and fancy knitting something other than a scarf...then this is for you!
Basically it is just a rectangle which is sewn together on one side. Add a pom pom and some ties (these are made with three lengths of wool threaded through the corners of the hat and then plaited).
I used quite chunky wool on size 8.0mm needles. 40 stitches x 17 rows (I think!)...you can tell I don't knit eh. My boy is 8 months old for reference ; )
