This continues my tradition of knitting matching hats for all the children in my family (current count: 4) each winter. First, there were pointy Christmas tree hats with i-cord garland and button ornaments. The next year, it was snowman caps, plain white with carrot-shaped noses and button eyes and mini toboggan hats on top. This year, I decided to go a little less wacky since the kids are getting a little older now.
