I shared with you 2 projects already, the knit and felted stocking and the Sven Sweater. Since the weather has gotten chillier I thought a hat would be a great thing to knit up, but then. I ran across the Calorimetry pattern on Knitty and well the rest as they say is history. I knit up, not one but two of these great little headband/hats and are they ever cute! The first I knit up in Cascade 220 heather gray. It was a little plain.
When I started the second I needed a brighter cheerier yarn. I started the second with Lion Brand Amazing in the Aurora color way. I have to say this is my favorite. I love the bright colors. I even knit up a little rosette for the side using this tutorial, from Nicky Epstein. Let me tell you, it makes the project! Even my 12 year-old daughter wants to wear it. Now that's a complement!
The pattern calls for a button to join the ends. The ends could just as easily be joined permanently with yarn.
I had these cute buttons sitting in my button jar just begging to be used. What a perfect finish.
