I knit this hat as a gift for The Boyfriend’s best friend’s soon-to-be 7 year old sister’s birthday (follow that?). Her favorite color is purple and she loves things that are shiny, so when I saw Caron Simply Soft Party I squee’d.
This is my first time knitting a hat and my first time knitting reversible cables. I loved both. I suck at figuring gauge in the round so this hat will probably fit her until college, but I think too big is better than too small. It is meant to be worn brim folded-up or down, but I think it looks better folded.
I plan on making the matching scarf for her, as well.
