A Family of Hats

Phillip asked me to knit hats for a friend of his and his family. You know me...I don't turn down an opportunity to knit hats. I thought it would be fun to knit the ladies in the family a mother/daughter type hat in the same yarn, just in different sizes. I loved how changing up the needle size and stitch count changed how the yarn striped out. On one you can definitely see the stripes and on the other the colors pooled more than striped. For the guys, I made Saints hats. I used the same colors and pattern as I did with the other hats, but I changed up the striping a little as well as the sizing. I think they turned out pretty good.
