Here's my son Josef modelling a green & white winter hat which I knit for him just the other day. New to hats, I was thrilled and amazed to discover how quick they are, and that there's no need for sewing. Even better than socks!
The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky in white and olive green. The pattern is from the book Hip Knit Hats (Cathy Carron, Lark Books, 2006). I was so pleased with the pattern that I plan to make lots more hats (that's Xmas solved, then) and I now have a big stash of nice thick yarn waiting to be knitted up.
