A Gift for Anna


My niece, Anna, had a birthday at the end of October, for her present, she requested a new hat. After I made her the hat, I made another (due to the fact that I didn't write down the pattern), then made my sister stand out in the cold to have her picture taken.  Thank you Ellie!

A cozy knit, this soft squishy cabled hat is a quick project to make.
