I have always loved hats, just not on my head. I don't know why I don't really look good in them. I decided to get over it though. Especially after dragging my husband to see Love Happens. I wanted to see Jennifer Aniston's wardrobe-I just didn't tell him that part. She was wearing the best hat in the movie and she had it in every color. I knew Ravelry would have a great pattern, probably exactly like it. Of course they did, of course!
I started this hat in ivory, but didn't like it. Brown was perfect!
I do like the hat better on Jennifer Aniston, but it is okay on me too, I guess.
Addison doesn't seem to think so. He told me that it was okay if I wore it around the house, but not while I was dropping him off at school.
" You look so embarrassing!"
My kids are starting to give me a knitting complex.
Yarn: Cascade Tweed, 1/2 of a skein
Mods: The pattern says to use a size five needle, then change to a seven. I used the seven all the way around.
I started this hat in a light color but could see my hair line through the knitting because it is fitted around the head. I highly recommend a darker color.
Also, a wet block gave it just the right amount of slouch.
