I fully intend on knitting my life away.

Two hats I've made semi-recently. I used the pattern off of HeadHuggers website (check it out, the mannequins on it are crazy disturbing!), both of which I've altered for my own evil ways.

The first one I made for my friend Ashe who always wears a ponytail, and in this freezing Wisconsin weather can never wear a hat successfully. So I though: Hat + Hole... and Viola! A Ponytail Hat! The colors of light brown and dark brown were to match her gloves. The hole was kind of lame and square, and this pic was taken with a phone, so it's hard to see, but my next one will be better, I'm sure.

The second one was with a beautiful ball of yarn I got, that I renamed Desert Sunrise, because it reminds me of Arizona everytime I look at it.

cute!  and the holey hat is a brilliant innovation.

I saw a hat similar to this one in a book that I checked out from the library. My little one usually wears her hair in 2 pigtails...so I'm hoping to make her one for next winter (it's alright 60+ degrees here in Texas...blah) so that her cute piggy tails don't get mussed when I slap a hat on her.  Cheesy

Great job! I love the colors of the second one. Smiley

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Love them both!
It's awesome that you figured out just where to put the pony tail hole... I keep putting off a pigtail hat for my niece because the position of the pigtail openings intimidates me!

I love the colors and cables, too.
Awesome job!!

There is a pattern for a hat for pigtails here (called a Piggle hat)


Here is a site where a lady made it but with modifications:

Ohhh...I LOVE the ponytail hat.  I am going to work one up for myself!  Hats are tragic when you need to have long hair under control and still keep warm.  Brilliant!

Yours turned out great. I'm actually working the same pattern right now, and I have a question. I've just gotten to the part where I have to start shaping, and I'm confused.

This is what it says- Row 1: K2 sts together, K9. Repeat across entire row. Well this would get a stockinette style top. However, In your pictures, it would seem as though you have the cables going all the say to the top, with the  ribs of purls continuing up too. I'm confused, and I hope you, or some other considerate person, could help me out of my confusion in this, my first hat.
