Now with only eight sleeps to spring, I have finally cracked it – the two year old has a winter hat. It fits her, (she looks slightly less bald than in the earlier attempt) and it was roadtested (successfully) over three hours while partying at the park/hanging upside down at bewildering heights, off play equipment intended for eight year olds. Even though she loves party hats she loves her Starrberry beret more.
The excellent freebie pattern is courtesy of the clever Mel at M*. The pattern is adult-sized, but I snuck in some extra decreases and wing and prayer-ed it, also because the (OOOH! Look, now it’s blue! OOOH! Look, now it’s pink!) sock wool bought from Sunspun has become a bit of an obsession. Only not for socks.
PS. There’s an adult-sized Starrberry Beret giveaway going on even as I type. Pop on over to see Mel quick sticks to be in with a chance for your own custom-coloured hatty statement.
* It’s put a smile on my dial and a boogie in my walk, even though I have just woken up the kid. If you are the right demographic (i.e. about my age, you seriously need to go HERE, right now – and turn up that volume to LOUD).
