Just finished Norby. It was made for a store sample for our new yarn store! The pattern and yarn was given to me by the store manager for this. :)

I knit loose so I used a smaller needle size (3 instead of 4). Also knit the border flat then seamed it since it was garter. Otherwise I followed the pattern.

Yarn- Anzula Luxury Fibers
Pattern- Norby

Gorgeous color and pattern. Very nicely done!

Very nice hat! I like your attention to detail, knitting it flat and then seaming it to avoid a jog.

How do you like your new yarn shop?

I actually did the border flat to avoid purling. That was dumb in this case because the entire pattern has some garter. :lol:

The new yarn store opens on Saturday, but it should be great. only a mile from me, too! Now our group will have a place to knit on Tuesday and Friday. Yay! We've been together for probably 5-6 yrs. This will be the third yarn store because the other two closed. And yes, we do knit/spin twice a week! :yay: Well, Tuesday is spinning, but it's some of the same group so a few knitters crashed the party. Hopefully this new store won't mind.

Love the hat! Lucky you with the new yarn store!!

Awww, that is one cute hat, Jan! I assume it's child-size? Not baby-size? Anyway, very pretty little hat!

Edited to add: I found the pattern on Ravelry. The hat does look to be adult-size! Norby

It's adult size and very slouchy. Assuming I get it back at so epoint in wearable condition...I'm not sure I'd wear it. I'm not a hat person, but I live to make them!

Thanks all!

Nice hat! How'd you like the yarn? They could give you yarn for hats as often as they want!
