Wawa Hat FO

This little hat sized for a toddler was kind of a request knit. It was super fast - three or four hours total.

I can't really believe I knit it. Its not my taste and it was really mindless to work on. 'Largely knit in the car to and from the cottage last weekend I rarely looked at it while knitting so now it seems surreal that it came off my needles.
Pattern: Wawa Hat by Jane Ellison from Mirasol Book 3
Yarn: Mirasol Tupa 50% Silk 50% Merino
Colours: Amber 802, Turquoise 803, Ruby Red 808, Gold 801, Jade 805, Dark Auburn 810
Needles: 4mm Aero straights
Start: October 14 Finish October 21, 2008
Modifications: None

The hat is knit flat with the colourwork done by slipping stitches. The ear flaps are made first then the stitches for the brim of the hat are picked up and cast on after that.

The yarn is beautiful to work with. The colours are gorgeous - especially Ruby Red and Deep Auburn.

Done. Gone. 'Nuff said.

Wow! I can't believe you knit that so quickly and without looking at it much. That's amazing! I agree, the colors are gorgeous. It's very cute.
