It never officially felt like winter in the Bay Area this year until last week. At which point the knitting bug hit me pretty hard and my little “sweet sweet”, as I like to call her, needed something warm and snugly to cover her ears and ward off the bite in the air.
It’s a good thing I happened to pick up the Malabrigo Rios yarn at Stitches West for this very purpose! This was my first time working with this yarn and I really loved it. It is super wash, the colors are just stunning!
I improvised a pattern similar to the Bright Beret that Read One Knit Too raves about and added a little i-cord tale and pom-pom for some whimsy. It’s not as slouchy as the original pattern, but I’m just happy it fits! It knit up so quickly, and she doesn’t immediately take it off when I put it on, so I consider this a super successful project 🙂
