New Hat Pattern!

Hi Knitters,
I love this new hat I just took off my needles. It is wonderful to wear and warm and the yarn is beautiful. I tried the new Rowan Cocoon which is a wool/mohair blend. I will write up the pattern, hopefully tomorrow and make it available for purchase. This is a quick, quick knit on US size 10 needles.
The sweet treat is that I threw in some RYC Cashsoft to add a punch of color on top and extra warmth on the inside. I knitted a quick liner right onto the hat with this super soft luscious yarn. Rowan yarn rarely lets you down. I simply love this new hat. My girls are already fighting over it.
You know when you have a little lipstick on your teeth and you wish someone would have told you? Well, that's the case here (look close), too funny. You can't expect your 16-year-old son to help you out with something like that, right? I will have a better picture for the pattern I promise. That makes me laugh.
The hat also fits my daughters who are 8 and 11 years-old and I think it could be an attractive man hat as well minus the poms, versatile all the way.
Anyway, stay tuned if you are interested. I hope to get this up quickly. I have to come up with a name, too.
Take care, knitters.
best, susie
