For Future Reference

Thorpe hat
It's that time of year again. The time of year when the kids start outgrowing their winter clothing, that is. I swear, I buy/make it big in the fall but by February we always need something new. No matter, I had been wanting to try Thorpe for quite awhile. This one turned out just as I had planned, although I haven't gotten to the crocheted bits yet.

As per my usual M.O., I didn't swatch for this but just grabbed some Cascade 220 Paints, doubled it and knit the medium on size 9 needles. Smaller needle, larger pattern, eh, it worked out. I didn't knit as many garter-stitch rows on the front because I was worried it was getting too long for her almost-four-year-old head.

One way to get a preschooler to laugh is to have her look outside at feet of crusty snow on the ground and ask if she sees the Easter Bunny. Just for future reference.

Cute! I'll have to remember that trick for use on my 3.5 year old. She's darling and so is the hat!
