hot tamale topper

meet the new go-to hat!

its robust red color and wide, snug ribbed band make this hat the number one hit of the season so far. knit with less than one skein of miss babs yummy yummy sock yarn it has great spring and recoil, something that is important when you are constantly putting on and taking off. the pattern is eyelet cap from vogue knitting, fall 2009 (the pattern doesn't seem to be available online yet, but most of their patterns do get archived on their site. the magazine is still out in stores). their version is considerably slouchier...the trade off for finding super springy yarn, it doesn't slouch well.

as the weather turns colder hats are a must have. maybe they'll take the place of shawls as the season's most knit item...
