First, my great-nephew Zach's hat, in orange and black, the colors of his favorite baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles:
I was working on these near the time of Halloween, and people kept saying, "Oh how cute, a Halloween hat." So I guess if he decides that's what it is, that's what it can be. But when I chose the yarn and was knitting, it was all Baltimore Orioles to me ...
And the final hat, for Patrick, in black and tan (though the pictures make the tan look more whitish):
By now, you know the details of the pattern, and the only different thing is the tan yarn, which is Berocco Vintage in the colorway Oats.
If you want to review things, and/or see them all "lined up" together, here is the link to the project page on Ravelry.
I am both pleased with how well they all turned out, and that they were all made with yarn already in my stash! Win-win.
I'll be back tomorrow for the last day of NaBloPoMo - see you then!
