Newest knit hat designs: a preview

The last hat I did in September is coming out next week on another site - it's a freebie, yay! - so you have to wait a few days to see it, but here is a preview of the other two while I finish up the details and 'real' photography:

Green hat, done and blocked, and still unnamed.  (Naming hats is actually one of the hardest parts of designing them, but this one has a pretty big Bonnie and Clyde feel when it's on, so at least I've got something to go on.)

As you can see, I opted against a bow or a tail: in the end I felt the stitch detail should stand on its own.

For a bonus, that's actually the B side.  It's a completely reversible hat and when you pull it inside out: mwah! love it. I think this is going to be my favourite everyday hats this fall, except for one thing.

Which is this:

I still need to find Perfect Buttons for this hat, not to mention yet another name, but I can tell already that I am mad about it.  It's very snuggly, and very elegant, and did I mention there is silk and cashmere in this very fine yarn from Madelintosh?

Pure. Luxury.

Plus the colours.  So much love.

Owing to the severe button shortage here (I kid, mostly) the Madelintosh hat pattern will probably be last to hit Hugs, but I expect the green one will make its appearance early next week.  Hope you like them as much as I do!
