A friend asked me if I could knit a hat for his sister's upcoming birthday. The birthday, I think, is next week. He asked me about it in January. Looks like I've finished it just in time!
It's my latest take on the Skyping Beanie. I took a couple of inches out of it to lessen the slouch and knitted the ribbing band made a pompom in a contrasting colour (great way to use up some leftovers! Here I've used two shades of Skeinz Vintage DK)
I've seen a lot of maroon/grey combinations being worn this winter, so hopefully it's right on trend. more importantly though - I really hope she likes it!
