Maybe it’s because in the early mornings when I take Rogue out to potty, the air is crisp, clean and a bit nippy. Or maybe it’s because in the evenings, when you are just trying to take in all the stars and moon, you can see your warm breath dissipate as though it never existed. But something, and I really can’t pinpoint the exact moment, has caused me to take up the needles and knit hats.
Not one. Not two. But, three hats.
The thing about it is, I don’t wear hats. But I do now.
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in Duck Egg, approximately 1 3/4 skeins
Needles: US 3 and 4′s
Mods: The only modification I made on this hat was to do one repeat less than the pattern recommends. I knit four repeats and have plenty of extra room for my hair. And, of course, there is a bit of slouch. Thus, only needing three quarters of that second skein.
I’m thinking I can make a smaller version for Scout. After all, she loves hats. And she wears them. With pride.
