Plum of a day
This Sunday morning features Miss Rebecca's sugar plum hat, made for her because she asked me to. Who can say no to a small 4-year-old voice asking for a pretty hat in purple or maybe even pink. Please?
I knitted this from Frog Tree Chunky Alpaca on # 7 needles. I knitted it according to a modified beret pattern....which means I increased for the beret part, but not very much. Hence, the pouty plumish shape. The pom-pom is my first since the 6th grade, when I had to make the things in great volume for my mother for some drapes she was making. I have no memory of the drapes, just hours of pom-pom making, which could be why I have avoided them all these years.
