Winter Warmer!

I know, I know... I've not posted in a while... but it's totally worth the wait (or at least I think so!)
Whilst I've been quiet, and in between reading for my dissertation, I've been sneaking in a few rows on this...

I finally got around to knitting myself a hat! You'll recall I've knit this pattern not once, but twice, before (one was gifted, but you can see the other one here)... I love how simple and yet so pretty it is...

I am really looking forward to wearing this to keep me warm in the next few months as the weather turns colder. I'm not usually a hat person, but I think now I've made this one, I may change my mind!
The only modification made is an extra row or two more of the ribbing, and an extra pattern repeat, as I was looking for a slightly slouchier look...

Overall, very happy! I have more of this yarn in red... would it be bad to knit this pattern yet again??

  1. This hat looks great! I love blue...and red! :o)

  2. Your hat is beautiful! You should definitely knit a red one too!

    1. Thank you! I am debating whether to knit the red one in a different pattern... hmm, I shall have to think about it while I get some Christmas knitting done!

  3. OOOOHHHHHH it's Lovely! You did a wonderful job! I love that last picture showing it in all its glory! Yes make another in red...It's fab!

  4. This will come in handy with this cold weather we have on the way this weekend :)

  5. The blue is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing it in red, though.

  6. oooh, this hat is stunning! I don't know if I've seen that pattern before, but I'll have to check it out now- yours is SO gorgeous!

  7. That does not look like a simple knit to me but if you are around for the holiday and feel like giving me a lesson I would be thrilled.


Thanks for stopping by!
