FO: Leaf Edged Hat
I made this hat for a Christmas present for DH's grandma. If I have time, I might try matching mittens. She's 90 and still very active on the farm, so I think she'd make use of them!

I used the leaf edging from The Knitters Bible and then picked up stitches and sort of followed the basic hat pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I put in the other picture so you can see the edging better. The yarn is Wool Ease in blue mist. Hope it fits her!

That is one great hat! I can just see that on a feisty older woman walking around on the farm!

Thanks everyone! I really liked that leaf pattern and wanted to use it for something, so I chose a hat. It's a nice way to make a basic hat a little more interesting. And yes, hildie, I do love that book! I hope to make a few more things from it for holiday gifts.

Hey Mer, you should write down the pattern and PM it to Amy; I'm sure she'll post it on the free patterns page.

See, that's what a cap is supposed to look like! It's beautiful and I just love the color. Anyone would be proud to wear that and it is a wonderful gift!

Thanks all! Do you think it would be a problem writing up the pattern since I used other patterns as guides? :thinking: I guess that's what most new patterns are though, just variations on what's already been done. I can definitely write it up in this size at least.

P.S. I was inspired by Julie's lace hat she whipped up!
