With winter weather being here for the next few weeks or so, it's time to bundle up and stay warm! One thing that I don't step out the door without is a knit hat!
The majority of body heat is lost through the head! I live on the east coast of the USA, so it's been super cold/windy! If I don't wear a hat or ear muffs, I get a headache and my ears will ache, too.
This is a cable knit hat that I knit for myself a while back. I chose a neutral gray color so it's easy to match/pair with most of my outfits. I wrote this pattern myself, and have posted it on my knitting blog if you're interested: http://purllin.blogspot.com/2010/01/slightly-slouchy-cabled-hat.html
The patterns on my blog are all free, so feel free to knit yourself some winter gear!
If you don't know how to knit, but want to learn... I have a YouTube site with tutorials which will walk you through how to start knitting! http://www.youtube.com/purllinknitting
