Not only was this my first FO in 2013, it was made entirely in 2013. This hat was so easy to make. Ribbing, stockinette, and some basic decreasing. The lighting isn’t great in this picture, but I love the color as well. It reminds me of pouring milk into coffee.
I have a little head, so I prefer the ribbing folded over as you see in the picture above. Here is how it looks without it folded over:
This is my first hat for the January Hat Trick, where we try to knit three hats in January. I cast on a second one Monday night, and will cast on a third tonight. My goal is four, because there are four hats I want!
