Brown Beanie - Complete
I paused for a minute on the poncho just because I'm still unsure about making such a thick poncho this time of year. Already it's been 78* and higher the past few days, so thick is out. I'm still trying my hand at the beanie hats and I decided to make one of the beginner patterns that I had stored on my computer. It was a really quick project. This time the hat is a little long for my head. I think I will delete about two of the repeated rows if I make this for myself. I have a really cute olive green and brown skirt that inspired me to put these colors together, so maybe I will take out two rows so that I can wear this hat for myself.
All of the yarn used in this project is from the yarn stash - leftovers from other projects. The original pattern calls for much thicker yarn, yarn that would be worn in the dead of winter. Also the flower in the original pattern is felted. I just used an acrylic yarn and did not felt the flower. I think I like the flower the most!
Well, I really should be in bed now since we just lost an hour to Daylight Savings Time....
