a new hat. finally.
This was exactly the kinda hat I was looking to make for the Mag.
Pattern: Baby Hat – pixie hat to knit, Crystal Palace Yarns (free online)
Yarn: Dale of Norway Falk in a beautiful soft lavendar color (likely color #5224 but the ballband is not easily accesible at this moment).
Needles: Probably US 3, but I’d have to look it up in my knitting notebook (the squirmy baby on my lap is why I’m trying to finish this up quickly)
Guage: The Horrors! I didn’t check! It’s very stretchy.
Mods: I didn’t do the strap like the pattern said, but I make a short i-cord tie with a button hole.
I need to block it/wash it, but it’s been on the head nearly every time we’ve been outside since it’s completion, so there hasn’t been time. It’s machine washable, but I’m not sure I just want to throw it right in the wash.
This hat has a pointy top, which to me is the most adorable, delicious thing in the whole world. I can’t get enough of it. It’s so dang cute. Also it is very stretchy and fits Jerry so I assume it’ll be around for a while getting lots of winter use. The i-cord strap goes under her chin and is secured with a cute little green button on one side. She still can pull it off easily, but she keeps it on for good long stretches.
Ah! The wonder of babies!
