I'm finally feeling the pressure of Christmas knitting. I thought I was doing alright on my knitting and then I actually looked at the calendar - not as much time left as I thought! I needed a quick pick me up gift so I went to my pattern library.
I found the perfect pattern in my library and even had the right yarn for it in my stash.
Pattern: Tolt Hat by Andrea Rangel
Yarn: Imperial Stock Ranch Columbia in Quail and Cactus Blossom
Needles: US #8 Addi Turbo
Mods: None. I knit the size medium and it's a tad loose on me so I think it will fit the gift recipient perfectly. The pattern also includes instructions for a pair of mitts but I don't have enough of the magenta yarn to knit them and I don't want to run out and get another skein. This hat took about one long even to complete and it would work handsomely for men in a different color combination. This would also be an excellent project for trying out colorwork.
