My first hat was the Go-Go Garter Stitch Scarf from Stitch 'n Bitch. I knit it with 3 balls of Rowan Big Wool. I loved (still do in fact) this scarf. It is warm and quite happy with the blues, pinks, and white squares. Recently Florida had a bit of a cold snap. Yes! It does get cold in Florida! It has been in the 30s several nights recently. Of course I refuse to turn on the heat and prefer to put on a sweater. The cold weather inspired me to knit a winter hat. I wanted something fast and easy. I dug out the Rowan Big Wool bits I had left from the scarf and picked a pattern (Hot Head, which by the way looked a lot better in person than in Stitch n' Bitch). I must admit that I do love the match-yness of it all. I should also state that the hat keeps my head super warm.
Check out the cuteness and the warmness!
