So my colleague is moving to New York on Sunday! She grew up in South Africa and then moved to Perth, so was really worried about how cold it will be in winter.
I asked around LC for those of you in the cold climates for tips on warm headgear. I got a lot of ideas, but ran with the fleece lined hat, so I could make something her style.
She has a set of colours she wears - browns, mustard, forest green, maroon - so I rummaged through my grans stash and grabbed a cream, brown and green.
I found a pattern that had a mix of stitches, a bit like a sampler. Since she’s a bit eclectic in her style, I thought it would be a good fit. I skipped the row of quadruple doubles and swapped it out for another set of the bean stitch, as I didn’t like the way it looked when I did it.
I gave it to her yesterday and she was so excited, then she found out that I made it and she almost cried. “I have always wanted a handmade beanie with a pom pom!”
She promptly put it on and wore it the rest of the afternoon. She will send me snow pictures.
