I’m almost afraid to type the words “it’s cold” - because I live in Texas and that’s not REAL cold to a large part of the world. But we’ve actually had some winter temperatures this year and I guess I’m just really not used to it. This is the first year I’ve had a winter coat in ages – and only because I recently bought it. And for a girl who loves flip flops, this having to wear socks or house slippers all the time is for the birds!
So while the weather is cold and while I’m busy knitting all these hats for charity lately it hit me that maybe I should whip up a little hat for Brooklyn. I found a darling pattern, happened to have some yarn on hand and got to knitting.
All while I was knitting it I did think that maybe I should have done a child size for her rather than a toddler size. But knit on I did.
And it’s too small. Might not look bad in the photo, but it doesn’t cover her ears and without ear cover what good is a hat? The bright side is that this hat will go in my charity pile and I’m sure that a little somewhere will enjoy it.
The hat is made from the Corkscrew Tassel Hat pattern and was easy to do. One thing to note is that it says to use Peaches n Cream yarn, which I did, and knitting the tassels using non-stretchy cotton yarn about killed my hands. I pressed on though because really, anything for Brooklyn. :)
