from Patons Head to Toes flyer 2004
Yarn: Briggs and Little Regal
Needles: 3.5mm straights for brim, 4mm for hat body
from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Natural llama purchased at the Winter Fair
Needles: Size 4mm circulars. The pattern calls for 2 short sets but I worked on 80mm length and worked in a loop. Easy.
Modifications: The thumb hole was just a slit. I wanted a bit more coverage so I picked up 10 stitches, worked around 3 rows of garter stitch, then cast off.
And yes...I am aware that my bathroom mirror needs a cleaning.
