  Knock it off!
I had seen the Banana Republic Knockoff Hat pattern floating around the internet, and while I thought it was cute, I had no burning desire to cast on. Then Karla came over to knit one day, and what do you know, she had one on the needles. And naturally, I had to cast one on. I am so weak. I can not resist chunky hat patterns. Or seed stitch. Or cute buttons. Or Karla's enabling. Pattern:Banana Republic Knockoff Hat. Yarn: Knitpicks Decadence in Tide. Needles: US 10.5, Brittanys.

I have a confession to make though. I knit this back in January, but I'm only blogging it now. I got so caught up in Kellen's sweater (blog post coming soon!) that everything else went blurry. It was a fun knit though. It's a little on the drapey side because of the Alpaca, but it's nice and warm! I definitely want to make more in the future. Mmmm...seed stitch and cute buttons! You can't go wrong.

Oh, yeah, and Happy St. Patrick's day. As a not-very-Irish American, the holiday isn't big in my house. But I am wearing a green sweater. And I am going to cook cabbage and potatoes for dinner. Celebrations are worth celebrating regardless, in my book. :)


I fell for this hat too. The button and seed stitch were totally what pushed me over the edge. I picked a Lion's Brand cheapy yarn that looked pretty in the skein, but I'm not sure I like the finished version. Might have to try it again.

Like two seconds after you commented on my blog I posted the finished Shetland Triangle. I am so totally in love.
Super cute hat! It looks pretty easy....... was it? I am not really a hat gal, but this may be worth a try.
