Another New Hat!!
Bramble, pattern found here – free – on Knitty, is supposed to be a beret, and honestly I passed it by when I first saw it, because I really am not a beret person, in fact I rarely wear hats at all. I think it is my short forehead that doesn’t play well with hats.
Then it snowed, and my llama hat itched, and I was worried my head would get very cold if I couldn’t lessen that itchiness, so did what any completely sane knitter does and went searching for a pattern on Ravelry. I found that this Raveler (dianabel) had modified her hat (series of Ravelry links) into a slouch.
I didn’t have enough yarn (I couldn’t justify a run to the yarn store seeing as I had just bought the llama handspun the week before) to complete the entire hat out of the Paris Night (navy) Malabrigo so I (kind of) randomly started off with a few green stripes to stretch my yardage. It turned out exactly as I envisioned! I absolutely love it.
