It's been said before, but it's so tricky taking photos of yourself wearing a hat!
I wish I'd trusted my instincts and adjusted the placement of the start of the round in relation to the patterned panel, that line down the front irritates me
I do love the pattern itself though. At first I thought it was some sort of cabling but it's actually just yarn overs and decreases. Very easy to remember and has a really pretty effect I think
Clearly my behaviour in the garden was a bit strange as these feathery ladies came over to see what I was up to
*sigh* the state of my garden makes me sad. This is what it looks like after 9 weeks of having a puppy. He's uprooted some plants, chewed others down to the ground, dug holes, ripped out labels and plant pots and is systematically destroying the lawn. Oh well, I guess I'll start again in the Spring...
So just to recap, the pattern I used for my hat was Here's Looking At You by Lydia Brown. I knitted mine with some sparkly purple yarn from Flamboyance Yarns in a colourway called "Violets". I used less than 50g of sock yarn to make mine and I'm pleased for have another pretty hat to keep me warm on those Winter dog walks :-)
