Snow Hat by Rowan




so I finished Georgia's hat just in time for her to head south for some cold winter nights on a friend's farm.  She is very happy with it. 

The pattern is the Snow Hat pattern from Row√°n's Winter Warmers book.  It's knitted in Lima, which is so soft and has a really lovely drape.  The hat is dual purpose - it converts easily to a neckwarmer by simply loosening the ribbon, threading around the top. 

Georgia has picked a piece of Liberty that I'm to make an alternate ribbon with.  I adapted the pattern and knitted in the round so there were no seams to sew.  I already have orders for 2 more! 

Here is the model photo from the book and a picture of the cover.  More info can be found here:

Next to make and already on the needles is the Belle Cable Cap for daughter No. 2 from the same book.

It's the sort  of book that has lots of patterns I'd like to make.  Perfect entertainment for our cold wintery evenings.
