I whipped this little hat up the other day as a nice little change from knitting furiously away at my Eucalyptus Cardigan. That, by the way, is coming along nicely after several run ins with boys who don't know how to sit on a lounge that has knitting on it. Lets just say, many argghhhs later, I am remembering to put it up high before leaving it now.
This little cutie was discovered on ravelry, and here is the link to the pattern over at Pea Soup. This little hat was delightful and easy to make. The instructions are easy to follow so great for beginners as well.
I used some of the left over wool from my Lotus Cardi. (Bendigo Woollen Mills - Luxury- Lotus) and a little bit of green (Bendigo Woollen Mills - Rustic - Elm). I knitted it in the round on as set of four 4mm needles.
After posting it on facebook last night, I was asked to make one in gum nut colours. Funny as I had thought of making gum nut hats before but never got around to it. Here is some incentive I guess. Lucky for me, the colours of the bush are among my favourites hey?
Wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! Keep safe and happy!
Love and Light,
Hugs and Smoochies xoxoxox
