The perfect hat

Big words, certainly. But this hat ticks all the boxes for me:

  • Fast and easy to knit when the weather suddenly turns cold
  • Easy to amend and ensure the perfect fit (sizes from baby to adult)
  • Fun techniques (short row ear flaps, decorative decreases)
  • Recipient loves it

This version is the child’s size, which fit my 2-year old perfectly. It used approximately half a skein of malabrigo worsted merino, which is the most dreamily soft yarn ever.

The hat took about two evenings to knit, including the tassel and improvised I-cords to be able to tie it under the chin.
