As a knitter, with other knitters in the extended family, we have no shortage of hats. In fact, we have enough to cover the heads of a small, cold army. But I wanted some lightweight caps to take hiking and so I whipped up a few this weekend.
I used this pattern and some micro fleece I've had in my stash since forever, and it really did take less than 10 minutes per hat. I left the bottom edge unfinished, so it can either be rolled or folded up or tugged down for more coverage.
This blue striped fleece is left over from pants I made for E and Z when they were three. They wore those pants all the way through kindergarten, at least, maybe longer. So flppin' cute!
