Newest hat designs

Here are my newest hat designs! The first three designs were for one family. A friend of mine ordered hats for herself, her husband, and their young son and daughter. They had some great ideas for what they wanted, and it was really fun to be able to make their ideas come to life!

Wavy Multicolor Beanies:
These can be made in any size and are unisex. I made one for the dad and one for his son (who is Zoodle's age.)

Kitty Cat Earflap Hat:
I've made two of these--one for my friend's 9-month-old, and another in a smaller size. Soon I'll be making one for a toddler, in black.

Please note that the ears are now more "three-dimensional" but I forgot to take a picture after making that improvement!

Also, these (and other) hats can be made double-thick, with two strands of yarn. The hat on the right was made that way.

Slouchy Ribbed "Cable" Hat:
This fun, warm hat has a look similar to cable-knit though it's really just an overlay design over the ribbed hat. The hat could be made without the overlay design, or with the design in a different color. I really like this hat!

Zigzag Beanie:
Lastly, this is a simple hat I made for a friend. It is unisex.

I haven't listed these as custom options in my Etsy shop, simply because I have quite a few hats to complete and my turnaround is longer than it was when I started the shop! However, I am still accepting custom orders; I just need to communicate with each customer so that we both have realistic delivery date expectations. I'm thankful for all the business!

Thanks for supporting me, whether it's just by buying hats, or by encouraging me! I appreciate you!
