So when an email from Patons came with this free pattern, I was inspired to use some of my sock yarn stash to whip out a light weight, breathable stocking cap, suitable for the hot weather in San Antonio, Texas.
Not only was this a quick, easy knit, but I fell in love with the mitered square shaping of the crown. Believe it or not, that was a new technique for me. All in all, this pattern was the perfect inspiration to get me back in the mood to knit. Lots of mindless knitting in the round with a little challenge at the very end. (excuse the poor photo - the hat was in the mail before I realized what a bad picture I had taken)
My Peeps is so happy to be back to work on homeschool. I am blessed!
