Wurm hat

On Super Bowl Sunday, we decided to play along and visited two local LYS, who offered Super Sales.

As a reward, my girl got to pick a yarn. Little did I know, that she has an expensive taste. She picked possibly the most expensive yarn the store had to offer. But promise is a promise. With much grumping I bought it for her.

She wanted a hat. I love this pattern (Wurm). The brim is doubled, which comes very handy and comfortably warm in our parts of the world.

When we visited the second LYS, she found a button. I did not have the yarn with me, did not know if and how it would pool. I knitted the hat first, went back to the store and voila, the button was just perfect!

My little lady must be happy with the hat as well, as she wore it every single day ever since I finished.

Stats: Yarn – Mountain Colors Twizzle (85% Merino, 15% silk; DK to light worsted)
Needles – US 4 for brim, US 6
