Good morning, everyone! I'm actually feeling rested at the moment, despite the fact Jane has been waking up every two hours throughout the night. (So if there are multiple typos here, please forgive me!) I figured I'd take this time to let you know where I found the pattern for the hats I knitted for her. Have you heard of ravelry.com? If not, and you're a knitter/crocheter, hop on over to this incredible website to become a member. You'll love it. (I also want to welcome Lisa, a new reader, who was one of a few people who have recently requested this pattern...I'm so glad you are enjoying my blog! I hope you like the pattern.) You can find the pattern here.
The only variation I made to the bow version was knit a seed stitch (7 rows) for the rim--this prevents the rim from rolling, which I've never been a fan of.
For the plum hat I knitted every other 7 rows with the seed stitch as well. I love the look it created.
These hats took only a few hours each to complete. I love easy knit-ups!
