Late last year, I designed a stripey hat that looks great on both girls and guys. It was just around the winter holidays, so I shared it with you all here. Since then, I've been working to revise my few patterns so that they have not only a common look but are also written out as clearly as possible for a knitter's comfort and enjoyment. (Thanks again, Gail).
I know that for some knitters, hot weather doesn't make one think of knitting hats, but I have to disagree. Hat knitting is a perfect summer project: it's portable, light-weight, and usually pretty quick. And just think, you can easily knit up a few over the summer, and you've got holiday gifts all ready months ahead of time!
So, if at some point this summer, the mood strikes you to knit up a hat for someone on your holiday gift list, the Xavier Beanie is a free, one-skein project to try! Happy crafty weekend, everyone.
