One of my favorite coworkers is expecting 2 grandbabies this autumn- her daughter just had a boy, and her son (well, his wife, technically) is expecting a girl this month. Her kids are not the typical pastel-pink-and-blue types, so I thought I would "fun it up" a bit for their baby gifts.
So here we have "The Cousin Hats." A boy and girl version, but coordinating. The base is the same, I used the free Scandihoovian Hat pattern on Ravelry. The green yarn is scraps left over from last year's yarn wreaths.
From there, I added my own touches. A big crochet flower for the girl hat (yes, I am now branching out into crochet, Lord help me):
And a fun, bad ass Mohawk for the boy version (insert electric guitar solo here):
Both were finished off with crochet trim- it is on backwards, but when I fixed it I actually preferred this look, so I ripped it out again and redid it like this! Also threw some braids on the sides.
