"They" say, that you lose a lot of heat from your head in cold weather. Whether this is true or not, you certainly feel a lot better when you wear a nice warm hat pulled down over your ears. Of course you could run out and buy yourself a woolley hat at your local store, but how much nicer to wear something you made yourself and can show off proudly to all your friends - who may even want you to knit one for them - or not!

Step 1: Here are a selection of cosy hats!

Some could be considered a bit silly - but actually most of them are quite sensible! Here is an assortment of the many hats I have knitted over the past couple of years for a local charity.
How long will it take to make.

Hi, can you translate 'sports weight' yarn into a ply number? Would that be 8-ply? In Australia all wool (yarn) is sold in ply or number of individual strands that make up the yarn. Lovely instructable on pom-pom making b.t.w. I remember being taught how to do that in primary school (where I was also taught how to knit - it was the early 60's!)
by the way you can always knit a proper tea cosy and sew the sides up completely - a nice warm quilted type hat!<br/><br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_knit_a_quotproperquot_English_tea_cosy/">http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_knit_a_quotproperquot_English_tea_cosy/</a><br/>
