Vintage Habs

2scarves habsscarf1

The boys asked me to knit them a scarf. They wanted them done for yesterday. (Why isn’t it done yet mom?) I saw these 3 nice colors at work that reminded me of the vintage Habs colors. Out of 3 skeins of Berroco Vintage chunky in a red, white & blue I got 2 scarves & 1 hat. Have a look…..

The scarf was knit up on 6.5mm needles. Cast on 130 stitches, knit long-ways to leave ends for fringe. Sean’s scarf on Ravelry here & Mack’s scarf on Ravelry here.

Since Sean’s been wearing a cheap hat from a store (tsk, tsk on me), I decided to knit him up a hat in the leftovers from the scarves and hat just enough to make him a matching hat. All three projects were a quick knit. The hat is knit up on 5.0mm (band) and 6.0mm needles (rest of the hat). Details are on Ravelry here. I really liked this hat pattern, and can see myself using it again in the future.

How cute! I find it hardest to find scarves for kids and will eventually knit some up myself.

Love of Cuteness

I love the matching gear. But seriously? I'm in love with the color blocked hat, excellent use of leftover yarn, lady! (the boys are pretty handsome too :)

Sean is a budding hat/scarf model. He looks so serious! :)
