I sort of followed

The hat pattern Henya gave us this week. It was not intentional that I did not, but I think it was a happy accident. (See Abby #6415 in the background begging me to let her have a package of hot cocoa. Of course I said yes:)



It is being modeled by my precious Jonah, #6518. In Henyas' pattern, she had us make three triangles on the top. I inadvertently kept knitting and made four. It still sewed together just fine. If (when)I make any more I am going to alter it just a bit to make it a smidge larger. We have huge heads in our family. I will probably start with 35 stitches and work to 45, giving me a bit more for roll up. I think this pattern is also compatible to enlarging by just going up a needle size or two.

Henya made her hat using Noro. The yarn shop I visited did not carry Noro and I did not wish to drive an extra 20 miles to go to the one that does. Especially since I have found this shop in the next town north of me. Anyhow, I used 100% wool by Twilleys of Stamford called Freedom Spirit. It made a very soft hat which I like, especially knowing Noro tends to be a bit scratchy. It is not machine washable or dryer compatible, so whomever inherits this will have to be very careful in laundering it or it will fit someones doll.

I made this hat yesterday evening and sewed it up this morning. A great quick gift idea.

Thanks Henya for your kind gift.

By the way, if you missed my post before this one, please be sure to read it.

Sure, wool? Remember, if I use this wool it cannot go into the washer or dryer.
