Don't get me wrong, I love this weather. Nothing makes me happier than rain and winter and wearing sweaters, jackets, and scarves. Problem is, I have a love/hate relationship with hats. I love hats. Hats can be so classy and chic (love!), but they never fit my huge head (hate). Beanies fit (yay!), but because my default hairstyle is a bun or a ponytail, to wear a beanie I have to wear my hair down (boo!).
A few years ago I discovered the perfect solution, and I've been meaning to knit this hat for a while now. The prospect of permanently frostbitten ears spurred me to get on it sooner rather than later. Check it out:
Wait for it...
A beanie to keep my head and ears warm that also allows me to wear a ponytail! I love it so much that I'm knitting another one in brown, and may have to make one in every color. No more sacrificing ponytails for warm ears.
This just might be the best knitting pattern ever.
