Hat Sample!

10 Nov

For my classes, for my students, I always try to have interesting projects for them to make.  In order for them to actually see what something will look like, I try to make samples.  Hot off my knitting needles is the Snowflap Hat!IMG_3203

This hat uses the knit stitch and the purl stitch and is completely appropriate for a third project for most students.IMG_3204

Isn’t it cute!!  And it  is warm!IMG_3206

Appropriate for both boys and girls as you can see!  If you want more information on this hat go to my personal website:  Connie’s Creations.
