Sledding Hat

I was sledding with my daughter and when we went down the hill I got a face full of snow so I thought I should make a hat with a face mask. I also wanted earflaps because it is cold, but I wanted to be able to put my hair out the top too. I am not a morning person so this saves me time when I have to get my daughter ready for school hehe. I still have to wear a scarf with this but scarfs never stay up for me and this way it doesn't have to :) I especially love how I can take the face mask off whenever I want. I have the pattern for $3 in my Etsy Shop if anyone is interested.








and since I can't get hair to go through the top on my mannequin I had to model. It isn't the greatest pic but it works lol



Some lady saw my hat and wanted one in Rasta colors. She told me she would pay me $45 for it so I said "Sure!" she wanted it to be a little slouchier than mine. When I finished it I couldn't get a hold of her. It makes me mad. From now on I am just making patterns.





What do you think?

April, I think your sledder hat is very clever:) Very good problem solving:) I think this would be a great one for snowmobilers too:) Clever and fun:)

This is so totally cute!!! How clever and practical. I never get my hair brushed before I get to work and this could be a good answer. I bookmarked you so I can come back and order the pattern.

Jen said...

Love this pattern! I actually bought it the other day. :)
I was wondering though, for the "Rasta" version what yarns did you use? Cause I want one in those exact colors. :)

AprilDraven said...

I'm sorry. I don't know what the exact colors were. I used some of the yarn I had in my stash that didn't have labels.

how does this pattern work? does the ear flap go over the face? i'm confused about that bit.
