Four days before Christmas 2016 I decided to at last get on with the hats I was going to make for my sons and husband. I probably should have started sooner, but as they were all going to use Plump, I got away with it. I used the same basic pattern for three of the hats, but changed the design enough so that they don’t look like they are part of a funny group if they are out and about together.

This pdf pattern has all three designs on it and of course you too can tailor this to your own tastes! I’m lucky enough to have lots of small bits of Plump lying around which made the stripey hat possible, so bear that in mind if you have odds and ends lying around. You need one skein of Plump per hat, but of course a second skein for each extra colour.

The pattern is written in the round. You also need 10mm and 12mm circular (40cm or 60cm) needles or double points.

The hats shown above are:

Top - Tim’s hat - stripey version. Requires 1 skein blueberry muffin, and additional skeins of gooseberry fool, pistachio ice cream, peppermint cream, bonbon and sugared almond. You could of course just use one contrast colour.

Middle - Henry’s hat - requires 1 skein blueberry muffin and one skein of cherry pie

Bottom - Freddie’s hat - requires 1 skein damson jam and one skein of creme caramel.

The pdf pattern has instructions in two sizes - regular adult head and large.
