utopia hat

i made this hat for dan's birthday. (the pattern is from smariek here.) i started it the day before his birthday and knitted furiously to get it finished in time. i think a brown colour would have suited him better, but i could only find this grey colour in the rowan pure wool aran 100g range. still, i'm pretty pleased with it, and more importantly, so was he.


  1. Oooh new blog! Nice hat, too. It actually looks almost brown in the picture!

  2. thank you :)

    the yarn does look brown doesn't it? i'm pretty poor at taking photos - i'll blame the lighting!

  3. It's all about natural light. Never works with lamps.
