I have a friend who always complains that I never make anything for her. I have told her that the best way to ensure I make her something is to have another baby, but she didn’t seem keen on that idea. I have finally given in to her nagging, and started on making hats for her children. This is the first one.
Pattern: none. I made this up as I went along, and guessed at the size based on my own head – I just made the hat a bit tight for me, and hope it fits a 10 year old. (Of course, it would have been best if I had used proper measurements, but my friend hasn’t got a tape measure.) I’ll probably write the pattern up, so I can make this again – it’s nice doing spiral stripes because you have hardly any ends to sew in.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton – roughly half a ball each of 39011 (the green) and 39014 (the blue).
UPDATE: Pattern now available here!
