Happy Friday! I thought I'd take a few minutes this morning to show you one of my new favorite hat patterns, the Hermione Hat. It's a beautiful pattern that features a cable and eyelet design and has my first attempt at both of these techniques. I've made three versions now and I love each one a little more. The hat is an easy but interesting knit that I highly recommend.
Here are some photos of version one.
This one will be a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law and I made a smaller matching version for my Niece. I also made a lovely gray one for myself that I completed while I was home in Indiana a few weeks ago. My Grandma loved it so much that I'll be making version number four for her as a Christmas gift. I just can't get enough of this hat, can you tell?
I tried to start my version of a Darkside Hat yesterday but was so jet lagged that I was having trouble counting...never a good sign. I started over this morning and am continuing to have the same problem. I'm not sure at this point I can blame my issues on jet lag and it may be that I just can't count. But in any event I'll keep chugging along and hopefully will have another finished object and some pattern notes to share with you soon.
