Homestead: A Hat For Me

21 Dec

I found this really cute pattern for a winter hat, and decided to make one for myself.

Here’s the pattern: Iceland Earflap Hat

I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Claret; I was afraid the color was a little too meat-sauce-y, but it turned out to be the perfect wine-ish color that I was hoping for! And I just used the size 10 circulars and did Magic Loop (my first time, and it came out pretty good!).

I like this hat because of the cute little point at the top! Though the way mine came out, it looks a little more acorn-shaped. I still think it's cute. And I love ear flaps!

Decreasing and finishing off the hat was fun, and I really like how it came out!

Thanks to Tim for taking a break while shoveling out the car to take these pics!

First big snow of the year!
