Hat and scarf/cowl set for my Aunt. Both sets are blocking now and hoping to be in the mail by Friday.
Malabrigo! So soft! I had a skein and about 1/2 leftover from my Le'Slouch hat (which is finally blocking now with the others! Maybe it'll fit better.)
Don't you love the crown decreases!
I love this hat, sad that it'll be leaving, but I know it'll be so appreciated.

Its an easy pattern, I really liked knitting the stitch pattern. Once you got it, you could just knit on and on...but don't try to fix a mistake...um..er..
I liked the stitch pattern so much I tried knitting a button cowl using it. I decided on a button cowl so she could adjust it, and not have to pull it over her head.
oh..no..what happened to the stitch pattern.
Well, it wasn't working as well as I wanted to and I didn't want to waste any more time so I just knitted a few rows, made 2 buttonholes, and knit until I was satisfied it would stretch and fit her. Blocked it is 24" long.
Yarn, same as above, however....I double stranded it and used US 13 needles. Verry quick knit.
Psst..I cast on 15 stitches if ya wanna know!
I love those buttons. Got them at Joann's.
I just wished she would stop making me model!!
