hatta boy!

Giacomo's hat

pattern: Giacomo's Baby Hat
designer: Whitney at the Purl Bee
yarn: Madeline Tosh worsted merino for the main color, scraps of handspun Pigeonroof Fiber & Hello Yarn for the colorwork
needles: Addi Turbo 16 inch circs, US size 2 for ribbing, US size 4 for the rest

This wee hat has been on my to-knit list for too long. All it took was a bunch of scraps of handspun and some MadTosh I had lying around. Two hours later, I was done. I can't believe it took me so long to get around to it! It was such a quick and satisfying knit. Granted, I wish I had chosen colors that had greater contrast, but overall I'm pleased with it. As is Finn.
