When Karen from Fringe posted the pattern for the third hat of the Fringe Hatalong Series I instantly knew that I would knit this hat as a birthday gift for my littlest one. To transform the adult size pattern into a child size I decided to knit it with some leftover Madelinetosh in a sport weight (the original pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn). It worked perfectly fine and my girl loves her new autumn hat! And I love the pattern by Gudrun Johnston so much that I decided to knit another one for my older girl (the blue one pictured above…)

skiff hat

I finally found a really good fitting hat pattern! It’s the beautiful Skiff pattern by Jared Flood from the BT Fall 14 Collection. Also I knitted this as one of a couple of projects I made for the ‚Fringe and Friends Knitalong‘ hosted by the wonderful Karen Templer of Fringe Association. For yarn I chose The Fibre Company’s Organik in the Magma colorway, I have had in my stash for some time. This yarn is a dream to knit with! It’s a wool – alpaca – silk blend, super soft with a very firm structure and it cables beautifully! I love it! See my ravelry notes here.
