It is easy, in the dead of winter, to focus on warmth, survival, on what is practical. Thoughts of pretty, silly, frilly things are saved for warmer days and shorter nights. Eventually, one gets sick of wearing the hat of practicality, and yearns for a bit of Frivolity.
Frivolity is a fast and easy knit, leaving you with lots of time to decorate and embellish it. The hat is fulled (felted) before embellishing.
2.75 sts and 3.75 rows in stockinette st before fulling.
I started knitting to help me sanely get through the cold Alberta winters, and now I just can't stop! I love to knit and design using beautiful hand dyed yarns and prefer to support independant dyers. I share a blog with 3 designer friends at TAATdesigns.wordpress.com, tweet with them as TAATdesigns, and can be reached for pattern support at Trisha.TAATdesigns@gmail.com. I am Girlymom on Ravelry.
