Last week, I won a giveaway on the blog, Anyone can knit. Maryse had the coolest idea for the prize. She would gift a knitting pattern via Ravelry. Being the lucky winner, I decided on a cute new hat pattern, Ida's Kitchen. (Thanks Maryse!)
This hat is just fun. Is there really another word for it? I mean, just look at those chevron stripes.
For yarn, I dipped into Erin's colorful sport weight stash. (Apparently, I'm really good at stash busting other people's stashes.)
Here are the oh so colorful stats...
I didn't realize until halfway through that my hat reminded me of my childhood friend, Rainbow Brite. But who couldn't use a little bit of rainbow in the middle of a long winter?
