4KCBWDAY2: A Mascot Project.

Today the prompt for the Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is to find a pattern that represents or embodies our house mascot. Yesterday, I chose the house of bees, so today I need to find a pattern with a bee-like theme...

When I'm looking for a new project, I usually start by looking through my knitting board on Pinterest, or my queue on Ravelry. If I can't see what I am looking for, I use the Ravelry advanced search to narrow down some options.

So, at the moment I'm thinking I need to make a cute little hat for a baby shower in a couple of weeks. I searched baby hat bee, baby hat honey. Then I tried a few other things bee related, and some how I ended up with this sweet Norwegian baby hat pattern.  I also remembered this Flower Power hat I favourited a while ago. When I find a pattern, I like looking through a few finished projects and reading notes to see how people went in knitting or crocheting. As I read and looked around for information on these two patterns, I also started considering the crochet Owl hat that I made for another friend's baby recently.


Now like a bee, I'm flitting between these projects, trying to decide on one. Because they won't use up much yarn, I'm sure I'll be able to find yarn for whichever one I pick in my stash.

Which hat do you think I should cast on?

You could that Norwegian Baby Cap in soft yellow and grey, with bee antennae... ;-)

Oooh, I second Stel's comment -- antennae make everything better!

I LOVE that hat! So cute. Could you adapt it to become a bee, I wonder?

You are a bee - you must go with the Flower Power hat! What an incredibly cute photo of the project, too. :)

I love how you shared the ideas you considered. The owl hat is adorable, but I adore the Norwegian baby hat. Thanks so much for sharing. I haven't seen a pattern quite like this one, and my niece is expecting, so I'll be certain to knit up one.

I'm going to cast my vote for the Norwegian Baby Cap...too cute!

I think the owl hat is adorable, and the Norwegian Baby cap would be great especially with some antennae as suggested, but omg, I just can't say no to those chubby cheeks and that Flower Power hat!
