I made a hat for my friend's little girl. The pattern by Two and Six for a Beehive Beanie was based on Saartje's Knits adult pattern. Fun to knit and it looks like it will fit for a while! I bought the wool whilst on holiday in the Lake District and I am afraid I can't remember what it is - but I'll definitely get 2 hats out of one 100g ball.
Not really the time to be giving woollie hats, the start of summer, but we are talking Scottish summer here....so when I gave the hat to its little recipient on Sunday it was perfect weather for wearing it to a BBQ. And she looked like a little gnome - with her red hat and her little strawberry covered face!
