ever since i saw a hat with big buttons in ugly betty, i was interested in having one:) (by the way, i saw a picture of the said hat long time ago on the net, but the episode finally arrived in australian TV about a week ago!) so, i was excited when i found this hat with a big button on Ravelry. it was easy and quick, and cute! the only problem is that the hat ended up a bit big for me. probably the yarn i used was thicker although i thought it was bulky, as the pattern called for. (ok, i should’ve swatched….)
the yarn was acrylic but when it knits up, it becomes really smooth and quite warm. it perhaps is too warm to wear it here as our winter is rather mild (except at night);) too bad….
