Done, and done.
It's a day for leftovers, I tell ya. I finished the Halley's Comet Hat I was working on from leftover Karabella Breeze, and then cranked out an Umbilical Cord Hat from some leftover Bernat Cotton Tots. Here are my specs:
Pattern: Halley's Comet Hat by Marnie Maclean
Yarn: Karabella Breeze in Pink, less than one skein
Needles: Size 6 dpns, Clover
Mods: I definitely ran out of yarn before I was anywhere near an adult-sized hat, so I decreased 32 stitches over two rows and began k2p2 rib. For a real beret/tam, I think I should have decreased more, but whatever. So now, it's a kid's hat, I guess, but I honestly don't know what size munchkin will fit this hat. The circumference of the brim is 16". Anyone know?
Pattern: Umbilical Cord Hat, from the Stitch & Bitch book
Yarn: Bernat Cotton Tots in Yellow
Needles: Size 7 circular, size 8 dpns
Mods: None. As lots of people on this KAL know, this is a quick and easy knit. I cranked it out over two evenings.
I'll be donating the yellow hat to a worthy cause, but I haven't decided about the comet hat yet. If it fits my three year old niece, then I know what she's getting for Christmas!
Here's a top view of Halley's Comet. Sorry for the, um, distended appearance of the cap, but without an appropriately sized person to model it, I had to resort to the resident teddy bear.
