I made myself a Zig Zag Chevron Hat. A friend tried it on and then requested one for herself. I borrowed her winter coat, took a trip to Nomad Yarns and bought some Ella Rae superwash.
This is a seriously cute hat and a lot of fun to knit.
knit in Ella Rae Classic Superwash, colors 11 and 28
Here's a close-up of the hat, because I can:
Can you hear it whispering, "Maaaaaake meeeeee."? I thought so.
I had yarn left, so I looked for some fingerless gloves to go with it and found the perfect pattern.
Do you see how there's one pink stripe that's bigger than all the others? Totally a mistake. But I mirrored it on the other glove, and now I call it a design feature.
Rachel was happy and looks adorable!
Footnote: Hats are lovely to knit. I knit so many socks and fingerless gloves and mittens, and you'll notice that all of those come in pairs. Hats? Just one. Let me know if you need a hat.
