2011 FO #8 - Willow's hat

Baby Willow arrived in early March and needed a hat to keep her little head warm in this odd Melbourne weather.  With the leftovers from my pair of Monkey socks I cooked up a hat that was well received and often used.  What more can you ask for?

Vital Statistics
Pattern:  One from my head, top down, starting with 8 sts and increasing every other row.  2x2 rib pattern.
Yarn:  Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin in the Gazpacho colourway.
Needles:  3.25mm Knit Pro interchangeables with Nickel tips.
Started:  March 2, 2011
Finished:  March 10, 2011
Mods:  None, bit hard to Modify something that just came out of your head!
Comments:  Love this hat, the way that the colours showed up in the crown and then how they changed through the body of the hat.  It looks beautiful on Willow :-)
Ravelled here.

It is a lovely hat and would be made all the more lovely with a three month old baby insdie it!

Did your boys go through a phase where they hated anything on their heads? GS#1 is sixteen months old this week and won't let us put anything on his head - beanie, hoodie, towel, ... consequently in Sydney's bitter, windy (unseasonable) cold, he won't put anything warm on! Lucky he has grown some hair in the last few weeks!

Oh it is so cute and I love the swathes of colour.
