A Small, Fast Project

Yesterday afternoon, after the laundry was done and Caleb and I had baked cupcakes, I decided to start a small project. As I mentioned here yesterday, I've been wanting to do some smaller projects lately, so I decided I might as well just go for it. A few weeks ago, I bought Ysolda Teague's Whimsical Little Knits 2 (it's an ebook, but you can also purchase the patterns individually if you prefer). I decided to make Ripley so I grabbed some heather gray Cascade 220 that I have here and jumped in. Since the pattern calls for a heavy weight Aran yarn and Cascade 220 is on the light side of worsted (Cascade 22o works up nicely even at DK weight), I used smaller needles and the large size directions. I ended up with a cute hat that fits my medium sized head. I made the "less slouchy" version with the lace edge. It probably only took about 3 or 4 hours from cast on to weaving in the ends. I love the little "pleats" in this hat! You can wear them at the back or either side of the hat and they look really cute. Now I'm ready for cold weather - bring it on!

Have a great weekend!

Cute! I won't be able to wear any wool hats until December, so this is inspiration to get cracking!
