I made another new hat this week. I think i can admit i have too many winter hats and scarves. Yes it's -24 outside and a girl can benefit from a bit of variety, but i think i need to settle down with just a couple of hats. Right?
So, i made this one - it's a beret pattern. I love how berets look and i had yarn left over for this pattern. I thought it would be fun to make, and easy because it was knit with only 2 needles - and sewn closed. I have a habit (some would call this a continuing error) to make hats too big, especially for J. I followed the pattern to a T (except for my creative colour choice, that is - but this way it matches a whole bunch of mittens and scarves!) and yet my hat did not look like a beret when completed. As suggested, i did sew in an invisible elastic band to help close it a la beret, but i think it still doesn't look berety enough. Oh well, at least it's pretty and warm.
