Knitter Extraordinaire: Eliza (Rav id, Blog)
Mods: Turned the popular colourwork mittens into a beautiful slouchy hat, adjusting the stitch count and modifying the fronds as she decreased for the crown of the hat.
What Makes This Awesome: There is a lot to love about stranded snail mittens, and there is even more to love about a stranded snail hat! The colours she chose are great- the deep pinkish purple shade, and the very quiet flecks of pale pink.
I love the fact that it's a slouchy hat, they are such a wearable, flattering style for most people. The kissing snail motif is a little romantic when done in the grey an pinkish/purple tones. And for those of you who love the idea of the kissing snails pattern but get second mitten syndrome? None of that when it's all in a pretty hat. And doesn't she look happy wearing it? That's a hat that brings happiness, folks. Project page, including details on how the hat was done are here.
