Cutie Pie Thursday: Half-Birthday Hat

A new tradition: every year, on his half-birthday, my son is going to receive a hand-knitted hat. I love to knit hats, I love him, so it's perfect! This year I was a bit late, but I had the idea only a few days before his half-birthday, so I think I did okay.

While he's not entirely sure about wearing this hat, it should keep him warm. It's the Itty-Bitty Hats Inca Snowflake, knitted in Noro Kureyon and lined with fleece. Lining a hat was a new challenge, as was embroidering, but they were good challenges, that made me feel as if my brain still works.

I think he might like it a little.

Update: The hat kept him quite warm, as we braved the cold on a diaper run!

Can you tie up them flaps and knit a brim so it looks more cowboy?

That is awesome. I'm interested to know how you lined it with fleece? I am not very good at sewing, so I'd like some input on your technique. Love your blog!
