She was also happy with King Cole Panache DK (but it's a very fine DK so more like a sport weight) in soft grey and purple, which was lucky because that’s pretty much all I had in the right weight! The colours don’t contrast much leading to a really pretty subtle effect which is just perfect for Felicity.
It took me a few rows to kind of see and understand how the patterns were coming together but once I’d got one repeat under my belt I got a feel for it and I could read my knitting better and see easily if I was going wrong.
Felicity insisted on having a bobble on the top which obscures the crown a little but not entirely. After much deliberation and consideration of my bobble stash (we all have one of those right?) she settled on a pink one which I duly sewed on. 2 days later she decided it was awful and went back into the stash and picked a white one instead. Obviously this was rather annoying but the kid obviously had a very clear vision for this hat and if I’m putting in the effort to make her something I have no problem making sure it’s exactly what she wants.
I can see myself making an adult sized one in more contrasting colours for myself, but not for a little while, I’m definitely hatted out at least for a little while now!
