This little “Helmet Hat” is just off the needles. The yarn is a blend of wool and silk and is beautifully soft and warm. It’s a bit of an experiment, based on a few patterns I’ve seen, but following none of them exactly. I made it a little big so it will hopefully last the winter. Coincidentally, we’ve mislaid (I know they are around somewhere…) both of Little R’s hats, and as the temperature has just dropped, this one was finished not a moment too soon. We tried it out this morning on our walk.
I love the helmet style. This one is fastened with two wee buttons (though at present it can also just be pulled over her head) to allow for a snug fit around the neck. I plan to make more hats like this so I can experiment more. And because you can never have too many hats.
