I’ve been very tired and not been able to finish knitting as much as I would like, but last night I was determined LG would have a hat for herself, something super cut and chunky. I got my hot little hands on the new Spud & Chloe (Outer) colors coming out in January, and I really loved Sunkissed, it matches some of the fabric in her crib quilt, the trees have a bit of this peachy pink in them.


I really enjoyed knitting this up using this yarn, I have not tried it yet, and I am not a huge fan of cotton as it dries my fingers out. This particular yarn uses organic cotton and superwash wool, and it’s wonderful to knit with. It has a fuzzyness to it you don’t always get with a wool/cotton blend.


(an out-take were bg jumped into the shot)

I am calling this hat “Serendipity” because it came together perfectly! I did rip a few times as  I was too lazy to gauge swatch, but after 1 false start I got the width perfect to her little 16″ head. I imagined big chunky garter stitch ridges, ending with a bit of twirl-y decreases on a stockinette top, with a big chunky pom pom sitting on the top like a cherry on a sundae.


The ear flaps came out really nice, I was so pleased with those. I did the decreases on the inside vs the outside, ending with a k1, k2tog, k1 which balanced perfectly, creating a nice little triangle. Then for a bit of a “viking” twist, I braided 3 strands of the bulky together, making sure to keep them 6″ in length so as not to be a choking hazard.


I’ll be knitting one for BG soon!
