FO: Forest Floor
Pattern: Forest Floor
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK in 'Poppy'
Needles: 3.75 mm and 4.5 mm (US 5 and 7)
Mods: Changed the brim to k1, p1 ribbing, for a bit more elasticity. Ravelled here.
Notes: I'm so in love with this hat, it's absolutely perfect. It's got a little bit of lace, a little bit of cabling, and lots of great slouch. The hat is super comfortable and easy to wear, and how perfect are red accessories in the blah days of February? Also, I knit this hat in a weekend. which is crazy accomplished for me, because I have a pretty demanding baby.
What's that? You want to know about my scarf? Ah, well- it's a store-bought scarf from England, a gift from Guy who knew I was in love with it- it's got hearts and hedgehogs!! I saw it on a girl in a restaurant, asked her where she got it, but it was all sold out. Somehow he tracked one down for me. It even has pockets at the end! It would be an easy knit, I'll have to make a chart for it.
