blue hat

An easy quick knit, 35 stitches cast on, knit for 5 inches. Then reduce every other row - k5, k2tog; k4, k2tog; k3, k2tog; k2, k2tog; k1, k2tog; k2tog across. Draw yarn through remaining stitches and tie off, then stitch down seam.

Yarn: Limari by Araucania. Merino wool/alpaca/silk. Needles: 15.

It also has instructions for a flower, which I knit, but I think I like it unadorned better.

It's a nice soft hat.
