Lady Gaia’s mum told me that she needed a hat for her little girl, that covers her ears and that stays in place. How I understand her! So many times my kids refused to keep their hat on, taking any opportunity to remove it… and then you worry that they might catch a cold.
The first thing I envisioned was a cagoule. But do you remember those horrid things some kids had to wear at school: acrylic yarn, tight around the face, itchy and so not flattering.
Thankfully, I found this pattern in one of my Sublime booklets.
Should go very nicely with this little top.
About the top: no pattern there. Just garter stitches, and improvisation. I started with the back, then worked the neck line and both sides at the same time.
All in all, I used 2 balls for the top and hat. The yarn is Sirdar, bought at Golden Dragon, and this is what left of the two balls. No waste for these projects.
Now what do you think about the fabric in the background?
