I hope Oldest Maternal Niece (aren't my blog nicknames clever?) doesn't read this blog. I don't think she does. Her mom does, so I won't be showing her hat when I make it, but I think it's safe to post OMN's hat.
Kind of a crappy photo, but here it is:
Pattern: Fusilli Beanie
Yarn: Noro Kureyon, color 153, not even a full ball
Needles: US 8
Notes: A fast and fun knit. I struggled with finding a pattern for OMN, but I settled on this one. After her mom informed me she digs purple--I pulled this Noro out of the stash.
Now because OMN is I want to say a young teenager now (or about to be one) I went with a beanie because it will keep her head warm without being too dorkalicious that she won't want to wear a hat when it's cold. It doesn't quite cover my ears. But I figure any head coverage is better than no coverage.
I grew up in a cold climate, I remember the peer pressure to not wear dorky winter hats!
I hope she digs it.
