Does anyone know where I can get custom made LTK pilot hats. I really want to get rid of the crud fleece this year and get some really nice wool pilot hats for a 3yo and 5yo head. Also thinking of lining them with lightweight merino wool to block wind and for added warmth. I absolutely can't knit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I tried...and tried. I learn best by watching and working with someone and I don't have time to do that right now. I thought of wool balaclavas, but pilot hats are so cute. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Any ideas?

The pattern comes with a limited licence, so theoretically it shouldn't be a problem to find a mama to knit for you. I'd offer to do it myself, but I seriously need to put my own kiddos first for a while (no knitter's children should have this few longies, sweaters and handknit hats.) If you haven't got anything sorted by mid-September or later, feel free to PM me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Perhaps a post on the ISO Marketplace forum? You never know, you might be able to work a trade too? Perhaps offer double or triple the wool needed for your hats and let the maker keep the rest?<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">I would offer, but IMHO, I'm not that great a knitter. And I can barely keep my own family covered in wool. Dh has been using a hat I had knit for charity for two winters already. I need to actually finish the one I started 2 1/2 years ago for him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"></span>
