I think the phase has passed. I’ve got three hats. The family in question has three sprockets. I think the numbers line up pretty well. But before they go off to live with their new owners (after all, it is still awfully warm here), I wanted to show them to you.
If I can find some heads to wear them for pattern photos between now and when it gets cold enough that the kids need hats, I may do a pattern. I have a suspicion that might not happen though. I sort of like the idea of having these just be something I knit to knit them, not to write them up and do the whole pattern process. Knitting just for its own sake. I miss it.
