My reluctant model
But mom, this hat is not even for me!
Pattern: Thorpe by Kirsten Kapur.
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, 100% superwash merino, lepidoptra (less than 1 skein) and lapis (much, much less than 1 skein).
Needles: US 6/4.0 mm
Gauge and finished dimensions: at a gauge of about 5 stitches per inch, this hat is about 18" around and 8" from crown to the edge in the front. I knit the garter stitch brim flat and then seamed it, just like last time.
Not my first time knitting this pattern - I still love it! I adjusted the numbers to fit my yarn, and to make a hat which is about 18" in circumference. The intended recipient turns 1 in a few days, and this hat is meant to fit her next winter, when she's 18-24 months old. Conveniently, I should be able to use the same numbers and the same yarn (what gorgeous colors!) to knit Gregory a hat for next winter, too.
I might use the lapis as the main color for Gregory, I think it looks great on him!
