Charlie's Sock Yarn Hat
I originally made this hat because I had a half a skein of sock yarn leftover from a previous project. Little did I know it was to become “the hat” in the fleet of hats I’d knit for my son. He wore it everywhere; outside, inside, to bed at night. He even bargained to wear it in the bath tub. I’ve since knit him a couple more, and because I take any opportunity to buy sock yarn, I’ve knit one for just about every kid I know. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s ever so cute.
