The Winterberry Hat

I'm on a roll....another post about a knitting project!!!

In October 2008, I took a class for this Winterberry Hat at Lori's Frames Fibers and Frills in Alpine, CA. The pattern design was developed by Charlie Hada, one of THE best knitting mentors/teachers one could hope to find. I will say now that it has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to be in her class for 6 years and to continue on with Athena who started out as Charlie's assistant.

This is a perfect project if you want some instant gratification. It took less than a week to knit up and then with a little extra embellishing using French Knots, Duplicate Stitch and a Lazy Daisy or two it just looks like a intricate pattern that required so much more time.

This is a great project for winter gifting if you need something FAST.

Hannah received this hat as a birthday gift and I was tickled to death by her reaction. Everyone should have a Hannah to knit for!!
