Mushroom Cap

Today, I decided to go through my Winter knitwear and accessories to figure out what Melody and I will need before it gets too cold. I made this hat for myself in January, but I never wore it and I kind of forgot about it. Naturally, Melody wanted to try it on as soon as she saw it. To my surprise, it fit her quite well even though I had made the adult size. Kids have big noggins!The brim is super stretchy so it's really perfect for fitting different sized heads. She needed a new hat anyways, so this worked out well. I like that the brim can cover her ears on those super cold and windy days.I am sure she wouldn't mind sharing the hat with me if I wanted to wear it. Though she looks way cuter in that hat than me.Did I mention that it only took one skein of yarn and it's a super fast knit? You can have a hat in a day. Go make one!

Pattern: Shroom from Knitty.com
Needles: US9 and US11
Yarn: J.Knits Wash Me-Superchunk, colorway: Indiana. One skein has 95 yards and I had 2.5 yards leftover.
Size: Adult size

So a mushroom haircut is a very bad thing indeed, but a mushroom hat clearly couldn't be more different- Simply adorable!
