First FO for 2009 Yea!

Like the majority of the country, the weather has been brutally cold here in Philly. Like single digit cold, and we haven't had that in several years. Therefore a nice toasty hat was in order.

Pattern: Robin's Egg Blue Hat from i dream of knitting
Yarn:Malabrigo chunky in Stonechat which I won over a year ago from Cinnamon Girl at Happyhand Work
Needle size: 10.5
Size: women's medium

Love, love, love the yarn and the pattern too. It is super easy and took less than a week. Maybe three days? I have never knit with malabrigo before, and I must say it was awesome. And the colors of this yarn are just beautiful. I know after a while malabrigo pills and stuff, but to have a worsted weight sweater out of this colorway, would be a good thing.
Hmmm....I see a future project.

I like the swirly thing the crown does. Cool!

Stay warm and happy knitting! TTFN!


  1. I love that hat! It's even in a nice toasty color. I hope it keeps you nice and warm.

    It was BEAUTIFUL here today. Steve and I went out to the Wildlife Reserve on Merritt Island and I was very comfortable with just a turtleneck shirt and sweater.

  2. That's a great hat! Love the decreases.

  3. I love the hat, very pretty colorway! I hope you guys are staying very warm...we are seeing more snow today : )

  4. I love your hat. The colors are beautiful.

  5. Love the colorway of the hat! I have no idea what cold weather is....its been in the 80's here in Ca! Isn't it supposed to be winter? Its supposed to cool down into the 70's today I am wearing some of my hand knit socks!

  6. I love your hat! I have had that pattern on my to do list for the last month. Now after reading about yours I think I will finally cast on.

  7. I really love the hat. It is so nice and I love the stitch definition.

  8. I have a hat in that exact same yarn & color. I don't get to wear it much but you're right, Malabrigo is incredible. Keep warm!

  9. This hat is so cute!!! I love the yarn color! I love MALABRIGO!!!
