Anyway, through me she is able to custom order things that her kids are in to. This year, she decided to have her boys each get R2D2 hats. I found a great pattern for them and was super excited to make them. Nolan is a big fan of Star Wars and it was awesome when he knew that it was R2 before I was even half way through the first hat!
This was one of my first stranding projects. I am not too experienced in colorworking with stranding and intarsia. But I made it through and it turned out great! I changed the needle size in order to change the sizing of the hat. I needed a slight variant in sizing and going up a needle size helped with that. I know I will be making another one soon for Nolan. He cried when I mailed them out :(
