Unlike last week when I had a massive amount of year-end projects to show off, today I just have one.
Shortly after the new year started I began working on a smaller replacement of the Strib hat I made for one of my great-nephews. You know, one of those that ended up to be so big they barely fit me, let alone an eight-year-old?
The hat makes up quickly … unless of course you keep getting interrupted, which seems to happen a lot lately. Still, I managed to get it finished this past weekend and ready to mail out. Except we got hit with extremely cold weather so I didn’t make it to the post office until yesterday. It’s a shame really. I bet he could have used it this week (not that he had school Mon and Tues).
I really like this pattern. It’s not evident when you first look at it, but the ribbing changes throughout the main section. So you only end up working a few rows before you’re either changing the color and/or you are changing the ribbing pattern. Great for someone that gets bored easily with the stockinette stitch.
Pattern: Strib Hat
Designer: Kelly Williams
Yarns: Caron One Pound; Berroco Comfort Chunky
Colorways: 503 black; 5725 Teal and 5740 Lime

I am sure your great-nephew will be happy with this one. I have heard on the news that it has been so cold all over America. Here it has been raining for weeks. It has been a while since I have left a comment, but I have been visiting. First I will say that it looks like you had a wonderful family Christmas, and your little girl is adorable with her red Christmas dress. I am impressed with all your creativity and production of crafts in 2013! I look forward to follow you in 2014! I wish you a creative and blessed new year! Marit Johanne
I love this hat and I bet your great nephew will too.
I hope you get a chance to hop over and share with us at Tell Me About It Tuesday.
