The Second D.I.Y of Christmas - 2 Christmas Hats

Teeny has been asking for a Christmas Pudding hat for a couple of years, and of course Small had to have an equally novel hat, so we settled on a tree.

They are both knitted in the round with Drops Big Merino (100% wool, non-scratchy)

The Christmas Pudding hat is on the big side, but Teeny loves it and I guess it means it will fit him for many Christmases to come.

The Xmas Pudding hat made in Mocca 05 and Off White 01 with details in Forest Green 14 and some scraps of red wool I had lying around. Very roughly following the Luuk pattern on ravelry, but without the purl rows and reducing the amount of rows by 5 before the decreases (which wasn't enough, hence the too bigness)
The transition from brown to white I just made up as I went along. The holly leaves are made following this pattern but omitting the YO sections, so as to make for a tighter knit.

The Christmas Tree is made following the Luuk pattern on ravelry in Forest Green 14 with the star made in Off White 01 following this pattern. I sewed 2 stars together and mounted them on the hat, used little colourful buttons from my stash as 'baubles'
