What better way to usher in the New Year than with a new hat and matching mittens? I recently sewed Elijah a new hat after fighting his old hat for a month. (The old hat was way too big.)
I used McCall’s 5539 pattern for it and absolutely detested it! I like the hat a lot but the pattern for the hat was horrible. I ripped it out 3 times! So now I am on the look out for a new hat pattern for next year. Any suggestions? I did make the mittens from the same pattern which were pretty easy. Glad it turned out okay overall. Now what to sew next?
