Ah ha! I finally got this hat knit! Four tries later… Some patterns just give a knitter a hard time, for no particular reason. It turned out well though, glad I kept at it. Here’s a picture of it blocking, before it goes into the Christmas box.
Amelia keeps stealing a ball of green cotton yarn, so I figured I’d better knit it up before she destroyed it. Not enough of the green, but I had other colors of the same yarn in my stash (leftovers of a previous project). Got a good start on a market bag. This is also destined for the Christmas box – getting a nice early start this year!
