My Mother in Law’s birthday is right after Christmas, and this year she asked for a hat. In bright yellow! So I knit her a bright yellow hat for her birthday (but didn’t get any pictures). My Father in Law saw it and immediately asked for a green one. You see, they love college basketball and every year they get season tickets to the Baylor Women’s Basketball games. Baylor’s colors are green and gold. The green can and has been anything between dark forest and a bright leaf green and the gold can a be a bright, dandelion yellow to a dark gold. So you see, when I finish this dark green hat for my Father in Law and he wears it with my Mother in Law and her bright yellow hat (and the green and gold scarves and T-shirts), they will fit right in at a basketball game!
The hat pattern is The Bend
hat, which I knit in black for Caleb a couple of years ago. I’m using Cascade 220 Superwash so it’s easy to care for. The color is a little lighter than it’s photographing, but it’s a dark, rich green.
Sic’ ‘em Bears!
