A Tale of Two Hats

All hats all the time!

I used my leftovers from my Geiger Cardigan to whip up this cutie:

This is the Crown Hat, a free pattern by Hanna Maciejewska. It’s worked in DK weight yarn so my Wollmeise Merino DK leftovers were perfect for it.

And last night I finished another hat. I apologize in advance for the photo — I supposed I could at least have brushed my hair, but it really seemed like too much effort. Never mind shoveling on make-up.

This hat is the Therese Hat by Nina Machlin Dayton. I knit mine from Madelinetosh Pashmina in the Glazed Pecan colorway. I love, love love this pattern. I think it looks rather Les Miserables, don’t you?

I have another hat on the needles . . . but I’ll save it for next time.

Loki approves.


  1. I love the Therese hat (tassel, Les Miserables)- it’s on my list. Love the yarn/colorway too- used it for my Beeswax hat and mitts.

  2. I love the Les Miserables hat, lol!

    And we’re all entitled to bad hair days, even Loki!

  3. Love the hats! Must have been something in the air. I posted a makeup-less photo yesterday too. I rarely post photos of myself, much less makeup-less ones!
