hat and mittens

December 8, 2008

I’ve made a pair of mittens to gift, but I’m having trouble finding the perfect hat pattern to go with them.

The mittens are Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Mitered Mittens and now I need a not-so-complicated hat pattern that is warm and takes aran weight wool.

I was going to go with the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret, which I made in Malabrigo a while ago and is anything but a beret, but I started it twice Saturday night before realizing that it just wasn’t working out the way I wanted it to.

Any suggestions? It needs to be warm and it needs to be quick.

    I don’t know if you’re still looking for ideas, but the Harlot has a great beret on her blog today. I doubt you have the book the pattern is in, but I bet you could knit a little swatch, do some math, and figure it out.
