#26 - Little Man '05 Hat

Made for: Little Man

Pattern: Based on the Lil Art Critic Beanie

Yarns: Knit with a double strand of navy (#8393) Cascade 220 and navy (#4675) Crystal Palace Kid Merino with a stripe of navy (color: midnight) Manos Del Uruguay

Purchased at: Windsor Button

Notes: The stripe of Manos wasn't enough contrast. If I do this hat again, I'll give it a nice bright orange stripe. I love the pattern. I love the yarns. I love the tweedy and fuzzy fabric that comes off the needles. But alas, its too big for him. Will I ever learn to size properly?
