Baa-Ble Hat


Pattern:  Baa-Ble (free on Ravelry)
Yarn:  Halcyon Worsted
Needles:  Size 7

It was Easter weekend and I was looking for a fun and whimsical knitting project.  This one was perfect.

Can you visualize the sheep grazing on the green grass with a beautiful sky above?  It puts a smile on my face.

I love stranded knitting (fair isle).  It's my favorite kind of knitting.  Color A is held in the right hand and color B is held in the left hand while knitting.   If you'd like to know more on how to enhance the finished appearance of your fair isle knitting, read the following article....."The Importance of Yarn dominance"

"Never Not Knitting"The yarn for this project was purchased at Halcyon Yarn in Bath, Maine (blue not shown).  I love their yarn.  It is worsted weight, keeps its shape/drape and doesn't pill.  I think I have enough yarn leftover to knit mittens or a cowl.
 
I've now completed the hat and am undecided whether or not to add a pompom. 
 
Just a side note...........when I completed the had, it looked so small and might fit a child.  After blocking it was fine for an adult size head.
 
Happy Knitting!

  1. I love that hat!
    I'd add a pompom, but only if I gave it a sheepy head and legs... 8)
