Bomb(er)s Away!

Catching up on finished projects – first up, the Bomber Hats I made for my nieces last Christmas.

This past Christmas I decided to make Bomber Hats (pattern by Adrienne Engar) for my nieces.

Modeling the Fig Bomber Modeling the Blossom Bomber


These were done in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (Fig, Blossom, and Charcoal colorways), as recommended.  The buttons for both hats were from a stash of mixed buttons I picked up at a craft store in Chicago years and years ago.

I actually ended up making these twice.  Although I was following the pattern size 3 (child: 3-8 years), the hats turned out far too large; one of them was even a bit large on me!  As you can imagine, by the time I really finished them, I was quite familiar with the pattern.

The hats went over so well that my sisters and stepmother all requested their own!  (In other words, expect to see more about this pattern soon!)
