kisses

This is one of my favorite hat patterns. The absolute quickest knit, and a great gift. I made Andrew one last year, and he wears it all of the time. I have had to sew the streamer back on a few times. While playing football at recess, the boys grab it to try to stop him. I would just love to see that little boy standing there holding the hershey kiss streamer, as Andrew keeps running.
I am happy to check two gifts off of my list.
It is the meathead hat from Larissa. Her knitalong book will be out in March, and you can preorder it here. Although, anyone that sends $4.50 to Larissa's paypal account, at dumbmail AT larissabrown DOT net, can receive the pattern via pdf form. The pattern has two sizes, with children wearing the small size. Check out the flickr group for ideas on embellishments, or add a streamer out of interfacing for a hershey kiss.

And speaking of kisses, have you seen all of the new flavors? Hot chocolate, peppermint, coffee, coconut cream, cherry cordial, the list goes on. I, of course, had to buy many bags of several different flavors. My favorite? Hands down, mint truffle.

Enjoy your weekend, and I hope it is full of kisses!

Hi Leslie,
I thought that she wasn't selling it that way anymore, but maybe I'm wrong. I've been DYING to get that pattern and am eagerly awaiting the book! Your Meathead(s) are fantastic.

Kristin said...

Oh my! I wonder if we have all those flavors in Canada. I'm going to have to investigate.
The hats are great.

Windy Knitty said...

Mmm... the coconut cream sounds so good! I'll have to track that down. Love the hats!

Louise said...

Such a cute hat idea and i love that he loves it. A girl after my own heart - mint chocolate!!! Hubby hates it so I get to eat it all myself! Sadly we don't get kisses here. We did once but your chocolate is too sweet for us!

Knitting Mama said...

I love your hats! I still need to make one for my son.

Is there a new version of the PDF including child's size for the meathead pattern? The one I currently have is sized: Sizes: Adult small/medium (adult large)

However, I see you've made them for children?

Yarn It said...

I love that hat! I made them for my girls last year....and both have managed to be lost! Good thing they are quick knits, though!

larissa said...

Hi there,

Yes, I'm selling the pattern right now for $4.50. I just can't wait for the book, and so many people are interested. Leslie checked with me, so she's got all the info right.

And hers are super duper cute. Wow.

Thanks!
Larissa

Those hats are absolutely adorable, and I love that Andrew is "man" enough to still wear it. Such a cute idea.

I love that you have brought the hat back! It really is a brilliant idea. Mr.sunneshine wears his ALL the time - even wore it to and from work the other day... shocking - hehe!! Thanks for letting me rip you off!

Meggie said...

Cute post, Les. If you're posting about new hats, I'm assuming Andrew's sweater is finished. Good for you! I like Hershey kisses...the gold wrapped ones with nuts...but give me a bag of chips and I'm in heaven!

Sheila said...

All I can is Darn.. those hats are too adorable.

peaknits said...

The hats are darling! Must have!

Yarnhog said...

That is the cutest hat I've ever seen! It almost makes me wish we had winter temperatures below 60 degrees.

JudyMac said...

We don't get those kisses over here...:(
Nice hats though!

Knitterella said...

Oh I love that! Would be so cute on a baby! Thanks for the info!

TLCknits said...

What a cute idea!.. and I'll get Kimmy the coconut kisses! :)

radioactive girl said...

I love that hat! I keep seeing it and have been wanting to try it but have so many other projects going on right now that I shouldn't begin it...but maybe I will anyway. It is ok to have 6 different knitting projects going on at once, right?

The candy cane kisses are my new favorite.

Bella said...

I would love to knit the Hershey Kiss Hat for my grandson. Can anyone please email me the pattern.
