My Emily gets overheated very easily, so when I found this "Quick Fix" hat on www.vallieskids.blogspot.com, I knew it would be perfect for her. She loves blue, and I had some Jiffy in blue, which is a bulky weight yarn, the equivalent of the suggested 2 strands of worsted in the original pattern. I added 3 extra rows of sc, but I'm very happy with this quick and super easy hat. I do like the original designer's use of the 2 strands of worsted in blue and white. It adds a nice effect, but this is what I had on hand at the time.
Just finished working on a Lisa van Klaveren pattern called the "Slouchy Picot Hat". www.hollanddesigns.etsy.com. Lisa's patterns are all quite lovely. I can't wait to dive into her knit-look ones as well! I also whipped up another "Divine" hat from www.ravelry.com. This is a free pattern. I liked making it in the funky zebra/hot pink.
