Pattern: Swirl hat by Mandie Harrington
Yarn: Knitpicks Stroll Tweed in the Down Heather colorway
Needles: Size 4 DPNs and Circs
Since I bought four skeins of yarn for my knee highs, and only used just shy of three, that means I've now shifted into heavy use up that yarn! mode. I was a looking for a slightly more interesting sock yarn weight baby hat, and this pattern totally fits the bill. It's nearly as easy as a plain stockinette pattern, but so much more interesting.
I ended up making the 4-12 months size to keep in on a circular needle until the very end, but there's wide size variety available, which is great. I can pair this with a slightly larger sock, and have some older than newborn gift sets available.
