I saw this great hat on Hello Yarn and knew it would be great for my guy and our girl. So I found some leftover yarn and cast on two days ago. I’m being reckless with the gauge, so we’ll see how it turns out. I figured I’d start with E’s hat, since the yarn may be a little finer than the pattern calls for. Once I got through the braid it started moving pretty quickly. I’ll have to look to see if there’s an easier way to do the braid than the way I did it.
Here are a couple of early pictures. A close up of the braid:
I can’t wait to keep working on it!
