At the start of the cold season each year, I offer my kids to knit them a new hat. They get to design it and make all the choices about color, shape etc. and I will knit it.

Last winter my daughter Nova decided that she wanted a hat with blue whales. I helped her choose the colors and she helped me design the chart.

The first whale hat I knit for her does not look exactly like Skipper. Nova’s original design had a white pom pom with scattered strands of the 3 other colors.

A Pom pom is easy to add, if you feel like that would be the perfect finishing touch.
