Anyway, onward to FO Friday!
|Little Man's Pumpkin Hat (project page)|
Pattern: Little Pumpkin by Susan B. Anderson (from Itty-Bitty Hats)
Time Frame: started October 20, 2013; finished October 23, 2013
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in 6263 (Orange) with a smidge of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Nest (leftover from my Habitat Hat) for the stem and a little bit of Knit One Crochet Too Babyboo in 562 (Olive)
Needles: US #7 (4.5 mm) ChaioGoo 16" circulars and bamboo DPNs
Size: 3+ years
Modifications: The original pattern only goes up to 2 years old and Little Man is obviously older than that...so I needed to make a larger hat. I CO 96 sts and worked from that amount. I also added a "brim" of sorts by doing a 3x1 rib for about 3/4" before following the pattern to keep it from rolling.
Thoughts: I've made this hat a few times now and it's a lovely pattern, easy to read, and it gives great results. I have no problem making this hat again...but I think this hat will fit Little Man for awhile as the hat also fits me. Perhaps he'll let me borrow it?
So, there you have it :) A quick FO for today! I do have another FO but it's still blocking and some things aren't agreeing with me so I'm not quite ready to show that one off...perhaps next week. I may also have a big one coming up soon...it depends on whether I find my motivation to finish it this week. So close, so close...
I hope you're having a lovely Friday. I'll link up with Tami as soon as I can :)
