Right, I need to make 12 hats this year in order to complete my 12 hats in 2012 challenge.  This means a hat a month – easy peasy?!

So, I’ve been trawling Ravelry (I know, again! But seriously, if you’ve not looked yet after all the plugs I give them on here you really need to!) to grreat depths to find hat patterns I like.  It turns out I’m quite fussy when it comes to hats.  I’ve found a free pattern in each weight of yarn to share with you here, hopefully something might inspire you!
