How do you go from zero to blogging in the space of ten days? Three posts, three FOs. That, my friends, is what they call a hat-trick. And to ‘cap’ (ho ho) this happy trinity I give you, of all things, a hat.
And what a hat! This is clearly the champion of all hat patterns. Just look at the cute!
Pattern: Selbu Modern by Kate of Zeitgeist Yarns
Yarn: Rowan Scottish Tweed 4-ply in Oatmeal (a little over one skein) and Sunset (about 2/3 of a skein)
Needles: 2 mm for the ribbing, 3mm for the rest.
Notes: It’s genius! Genius I tell you! Did you not see those decreases? And the overall adorableness? Seriously. Like Melissa said, you really should be knitting it already.
Other than upping my needle size I didn’t change a thing (why would I?), and I only did that because I have a giant head. So even with the larger needles, it’s still on the snug side for a beret, but that just makes it extra warm and cosy.
Could I love this hat any more than I do? No. No I could not. Turns out colourwork is hella fun too, so if you have any suggestions for other small but excellent colourwork projects, I’m all ears.
On an unrelated note, in case you ever wished your vegetables were a little more friendly (and really, which of us doesn’t wish that?) check this out. I find it terrifying, yet fabulous.
