When I’m bored on snow days…

…I decide to write up hat patterns! This is the little hat that I whipped up for Z when her other one went missing. I got to use up two leftover partial skeins of yarn that I loved. The bright yellow is Manos Maxima in Highlighter and the other is Malabrigo Worsted in Water Green. The hat took approximately 90 yards of each color.

I decided to call it Magic Hat for that reason. It reminds me of the little “magic gloves” I seemed to have many pairs of as a child. They fit me or my mother.

  1. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    excellent blog!
