Lately I’ve been thinking that hats just might be my favorite thing to knit. I love how quickly most hats knit up (I get impatient with longer projects sometimes), and handknit hats are one of my favorite gifts to give. This hat is another one I’ve been meaning to share from awhile ago. Big sister got an Aston hat, and little sister got this one with hearts on it. (My original plan was to knit them both matching heart hats, but now I’m glad they each got their own unique hat.)
The pattern is the Warm Hearted Hat by Hannah Mestel. The yarn is Quince & Co. lark that I picked up at Stash. (The colorways are Kumlien’s Gull and Nightshade, I LOVE them together.) Quince and Co’s yarn is always a joy to knit with. Knitters seeing these pictures will most likely notice the jog in my first stripe (which I didn’t notice until after I looked through these pictures), but other than that I was pleased with how this hat turned out. (Except that I probably should have knit a larger size than I did, to get more use out of it.)
As I was knitting it, I couldn’t wait to knit the next row because I loved watching the hearts form! This hat suits the recipient well, she is a little love.
