Kiddie Cadet Hat

After the debacle of my previous attempt at a hat, I decided to go for something simple and straightforward, except that I kept picturing a brim which made it slightly less simple and straightforward.  The Kiddie Cadet Hat seemed to fit the bill (pun intended).

It really was an easy knit.  The hat portion is knit first and then stitches are picked up for the brim.  The brim involves a “wrap and turn” which I struggled with when I knit toe up socks a few years ago.  I’ve avoided patterns with it in them ever since.  This time, it came together and I’m really happy with the cute little brim on the hat.

The yarn is Spud & Chloe Sweater in “Lake” that I’ve had in my stash for ages.  I really liked the super wash wool/cotton mix.  I think it will be very appropriate for this cold spring we’re having.

I'm wondering what you're thinking?
