While I was making eight Harry Potter House hats for the local library's Harry Potter book release party give away, my kids wanted to keep playing with them. So, after the first three, I had to knit them each a hat of their own. I added some I-cords to the tops for flair. They just loved their hats and wore them at every opportunity....in the middle of June. Goofy Kids!
I used this pattern: http://media.wiley.com/product_ancillary/14/04700673/DOWNLOAD/0470067314.pdf
I made 4 of the narrow stripe hats and 4 of the wide stripe hats. One wide and one narrow in each house's color. So, each house had two hats. :D Unfortuneatley, I didn't get any pictures of the hats I made for the give-a-way.
Project finished (2 hats for my kids): June 2007
