This is the Tin Can Knits Barley hat, made in the child size. I don't have a child to give it to, but I bought this yarn because it was pretty, not because pastels look especially good on me (they don't). I decided to make a child's hat, and with the leftover 100 yards or so, I'd make mittens to match. And then I'd hang onto them, in case any especially-girly girls need a gift.
|Garter section! Oooooh.|
|Stockinette section! Ahhhhh.|
It was an easy knit, but I did learn a few things: changing needles, using double-pointed needles (my mom can't even do that!) (but she can do a lot more than I can), and making decreases! I highly recommend it. Maybe make one that can fit you! But only if you don't have a giant head and big hair like me.
I'll be back tomorrow with an exciting announcement from a blogger friend. See you then!
