For me, Hot Head is an ideal stash busting pattern - it's quick and I manage to adapt it to whatever wool I have lying around by using multiple strands. These two were used to ease yarn buying guilt a little while ago but I just found them to photograph.



This one was made from a strand each of cheap but soft blue and green acrylic rescued from a charity shop - 20p for both of them. It used a very small amount of each, meaning that this hat may well gain a pom pom in the near future. Please ignore the ends, they're just resting there...



Mmmm... white bulky acrylic with a strand of pink aran/worsted weight mohair. Kinda looks like a cooked prawn but uber warm.

Now for my model...



He rather likes the blue/green hat. Especially as it is toasty warm.



It took a little more persuasion to get him to slip this one on...

But how did I manage it? His hands were busy...



Because hot boys knit too Smiley
