Today Annie and I would like to present to you a new original design: Liam's Camouflage Bomber Hat! When I saw the variegated "Toasted Almond" Heart & Sole sock yarn I knew it would be just right for making something for baby Liam. He's the firstborn (well, yet-to-be-born) son of our friends Julia and Will, and with a dad who has spent years in the army and a nursery decorated in a backwoods theme, I knew that a camouflaged bomber hat would be perfect.
The sock yarn made a really nice lightweight fall hat, although I lined the earflaps with mohair so they'd be thick and fuzzy like fur.
On the left earflap I embroidered Liam's name. Personalization is one of my favorite little details to add, since it not only makes the item clearly one-of-a-kind, but it also makes it easy to identify if it ever gets lost.
