All about hats

The knitting around here seems to be all about hats right now. I haven’t got pictures of them all yet, but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at the second hat I made to test my Calvados Beret pattern.Β 

I knit it up in Malabrigo Worsted yarn, and it took 65g. It is deliciously soft and looks like it fits its recipent well. I am not sure if it’s the done thing to knit a gift and then ask if you can take piccies for your blog – so here I am modelling it πŸ™‚

Not a super slouchy beret – and before blocking it’s actually beanie shaped.Β  Love the colour, I have more of this, so I might knit one for me yet…

And from the back…

Cute eh!Β  I have a couple of people test knitting it right now and hope to release it soon πŸ™‚

By the way, I took these pretty soon after I had my hair cut – what do you think? My sister commented it was getting long and I got a good 4 or so inches taken off it, plus lots of layers reinstated. And a reminder not to leave it so long between haircuts

And, didΒ  you check out that cute brooch in the first picture? It was a gift from a clever friend – I love it!

    LOVE the hat! It looks fab on you (your hair looks great too) – I’d actually knit that for me, and I don’t ‘do’ hats well πŸ™‚

    Superb hat! I love the hat, too and it has just enough slouch. I love the color, too. Doesn’t a haircut feel like it takes pounds off your hair? I don’t know how many months it has been for me….
