Yeah. Super cute.
I knew it had to be an ear flap hat that I could tie on her since she has been discarding her current hats in a heap the second I’m out of reach. Stash diving turned up some lovely pink Mmmmmalabrigo leftover from the Mod Cables Set. Perfect softness for against-the-face earflaps. Then I found some Patons in that same bright turquoise as the coat (I believe it’s leftover from my Norwegian Mittens). So my colorscheme was set:
I started with this pattern – the Cheery Flap Hat – but skulls and hearts aren’t really my thing. Plus the bright pink against turquoise just screamed flowers to me. So I drafted out my own chart:
|Of course I did.|
|Mommy does not like following directions.|
|I like this hat! It's as cute as I am.|
She even seems to enjoy wearing it! However I still need to block it, and I think it needs a pom pom on top. So I'm calling it the Unfinished Hat.
In other news for those of you who are wondering whatever happened to Destination Yarn :
Unfortunately I had to take a pretty extended break as the mask that I wear to dye made me gag. Pregnancy = super glamorous. But I seem to be past that now and I’m back at the dye pots in earnest. I plan on updating the etsy site a whole bunch over this holiday weekend in preparation for Cyber Monday. If you want to be notified when I update you can check out Destination Yarn on Twitter, Facebook, or Ravelry.
