After knitting several sweaters (including this one), and a few other Christmas presents and things for people, I went and knit something for me, me, me! I’ve got a few things in the works — but here is a look at one of my new knit hat patterns.
I picked up this yarn at Jimmy Beans over the summer — I think intending it for one of my girls — and then I decided my wardrobe needed a shock of neon pink so I stole it.
It’s Tosh Merino superwash — not very bulky, so the hat fits close to my head (but it’s wool so it’s still toasty warm). And the pattern is nice and stretchy so it should fit anyone. Which means I’m probably going to have to fight my daughters for it anyway. Nothing of mine is sacred around here.
And the pom-pom on top just makes me happy, even though it led to an extended argument with the kids who kept saying, “It looks like a Santa hat,” and me yelling, “Nuh-uh! It’s pink. PINK!” and them just laughing at me.
The pattern is simple — mostly stockinette stitch, with a few rows of garter stitch thrown in to shake things up a bit. I just wanted something bright and cheery for the bleak winter days I know will be going on for a while. A long while. Sigh.
