Peachy hat
Originally uploaded by ceecrochet.

This hat is ugly, I know. See, here’s the problem: My son doesn’t like hats, so he takes them off. He usually slips them over the side of the stroller, and they disappear, never to be seen again. We’ve lost countless hats this way. For all its faults – shapeless construction, radioactive colours, inept embroidery – this hat has one overwhelming advantage: If it’s suddenly gone from the stroller, we’ll be able to spot it at a distance of hundreds of metres…

It’s knit in garter stitch, in one solid and one variegated colour of Schachenmayr Nomotta Catania (100 % cotton), on 3.5 mm needles.
