NOT Socks?!


No, not socks.
Pattern: An Unoriginal Hat by Stephanie Pearl McPhee
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts' Leticia in "Space Dust" colorway, just under one full skein (enough to add a cute little flower or something)
Needles: 5 Crystal Palace US 11 bamboo dpns (10 3/4 size recommended and I might use that the next time since this was a tiny bit too big)
Mods: None :)
I love this colorway. I really like the pattern, too. However, the hat itself doesn't fit perfectly. It sort of wants to just lay there. So next time, I'm making it with the slightly smaller needles, which I did purchase. Has anyone else made this hat? What yarn and needles did you use?

Neat colorway! I used 100purewool doubled and US 11's, had plenty of yarn. However, my Leticia yarn with 11's, I ran out of yarn and frogged it. Want to reknit on 10's, but the K2tog are going to be hard to do. HTH!
