Neige hat

I know it's a little early for snow, but I wanted some instant-gratification knitting last weekend.

Neige hat.


neige hat flat
I unvented the pattern, casting on 48 stitches and working garter in the round till it was tall enough, then decreasing gradually to round the top.

The yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky, in a soft cloud grey.

I used 2 skeins.

It's extremely warm and soft.

Winter, I'm ready when you are.

You can't go wrong preparing too early. And who says you can't wear them through the fall?

Beautiful! That yarn looks just perfect for winter (and fall! Let it still be fall for just a little longer).

Hi Nicole,
Yes I know but I also know that it's taking a lot of time for overseas parcels to arrive, I ordered a pair of shoes from Canada 1 month ago and still haven't received it...
Thank you, I love my new dress especially beacause it's so warm :)
