The hat...

turned out to be a very fast project.
Finished this morning.


Not a particularly good stash buster project as I have leftovers from a 50g ball of yarn!



The design is just a little different to a regular hat pattern which added to the experience along with the pretty decoration achieved by the cable and lace - I really like the way the crown is shaped and pattern this creates.
 
Pattern - Hermione Hearts Ron by Christy Aylesworth
Yarn - Bella Baby Sugar 4ply wool
As tonight is the first Friday Night Sew In for 2012 hosted by Heidi and Bobbi I am going to put the knitting needles down for the evening and put some stitches in fabric for a change. Hope to see you there.

Happy Creating

Just LOVE this hat!!! Hanni made it in grey, and I fell in love with it. I definietly will have to make one.

Don't fret about the left-over yarn...You can make another one for a gift, and keep this one for yourself.

A great finish! I picked up the knitting yesterday but then got distracted! Maybe today!

Lyndel said...

oh such dedication to your needles. I've started a simple tea cosie and am only 1/3rd the way there! Of course I do have little Miss LJ here to distract me with trips here and there.

That is a very pretty hat! Nice color and design. My husband asked me to crochet him one but not sure what kind of yarn I should use that will look manly enough. :) Have a fabulous day. Tammy

Hi Mistea :) Coming from Ana's blog. I made this hat for Christmas. I was satisfied with the result altough for me it was a little bit slouchier I wished, but it was a gift for my cousin, who loved it.
Blogged about it here: http://hannicraft.blogspot.hu/2013/01/hermione-hearts-ron-hat.html
