Aidan's Monkees Hat

Whatever would we do without Netflix?  Well, we certainly wouldn’t be introducing our children to old episodes of The Monkees.  And by extension, I most definitely would not be knitting a green wool hat with a pom-pom on top for my older son.

But, we do have Netflix, and we have been renting The Monkees, and Aidan did ask me to make him a Mike Nesmith hat.  And, really, who am I to say no to such a request?  It’s not like these boys are clamoring for handmade goodies from their mother all that often these days…

The details

It’s not perfect – if I had it to do again, I would probably use a bulkier wool, and I would move up to the larger yellow loom, so that I didn’t have to stretch the hat too much when blocking it.

Still, he likes it, which is what counts.  Now he’s asking for a red shirt with white buttons on the front to complete the look.  If I dig out my old guitar from the basement, it could be a Halloween costume.  And as long as we’re thinking ahead, I suspect this belongs under the Christmas tree this year.  It’s funny the things kids get interested in, isn’t it?

I came across this fun little video while researching the hat.  Thought you might enjoy it.  Happy Friday!
