A new hat for Alice

Unfortunately, the adorable little owl hat I made Alice this past fall fit her for all of fifteen seconds. And because she tears off her hats seconds after I put them on, she only wore the hat for about five seconds. Despite her loathing of headwear, I can’t let her outside in the New England winter without something.

So, I found the softest and non-itchiest yarns in my stash and cobbled a little hat together. Voila!


Pattern: Kim’s Hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (after all these years, this book is still a staple for me)
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Rhodesian, Noro Silk Garden in ___ (leftover from my still unblogged Clapotis)
Needles: Size 9 Addis
Comments: This has become my go-to toddler hat pattern. It works up quickly on big needles and worsted weight yarn and the pattern offers a myriad of styles to make the hat your own.
Amazingly, Alice seems to really love this hat. She'll wear it if it's cold enough and when she won't wear it, she still loves to carry it around with her.
Alice caught mid-chew

I just ordered yarn for the first time in a year and a half (aren’t I such a good destasher?), so I should have some exciting projects on the needles soon.

She is adorable, and I love the hat! You know, I have that book and haven't tried knitting one of those hats. I love the colorway, too.

I have that book and next winter, I'll have a toddler for it too.
