First pattern from the gorgeous Laine magazine.  (I got my copy from Ysolda btw)

It goes without saying that I didn’t have the exact same yarn that the pattern suggested so I had to improvise with my stash… bring on Manos del Uruguay ‘Silk Blend’ in a lovely ice grey.

I also had to adjust the gauge and go up a whole needle size or this would have turned out a grapefruit warmer instead of a hat.

Yes, my head is of average size.  In case you’re wondering.


It also goes without saying that I got distracted during the first episode of the new series of Homeland (… they have a woman president in it… guess the election result took the screenwriters by surprise too!) and the body of the hat has a slouch that wasn’t present in the original pattern…



Oh well.

(Lilli the ferocious dog is patiently waiting to go for a walk.)

Will I wear it? oh yes.

Super warm and super soft it will be of great service during the 390587698540385768 hockey matches I’ll be attending this school term.


Do you think I’m exaggerating?

  1. It looks great and more importantly looks great on you! I think the slouch suits you, wish I could get a hat like that! Oh, and I hope this isn’t creepy, but I am on a glasses sort of thing right now being in the midst of trying to get some new ones, and I wanted to say that yours really suit you!
