I may have found the perfect winter hat.
It's called Schwimmen, and was designed by Shannon Cook. Her blog is also really cool by the way. Also, I think it means To Swim, which would make sense looking at the hat. Anyway, this is a really cool hat, that looks like it takes a lot of work but really doesn't. Each took me like two days. Hats are awesome.
So, here's the story. For Christmas my sister asked me for a cowl and a hat. We bought the yarn back in October with patterns in mind. But in December we discovered that one and well, she really liked it. I wasn't too sure if it could work because the pattern called for DK weight yarn and the one we chose (the blue one) is a light worsted yarn (by Quince & Co, full review soon). But my sister has a rather large head so I thought hey that could solve that. And guess what? The hat is a perfect fit for her!! Comfy, warm and slouchy, just like she asked.
The truth is, I really liked it too. And I had some DK yarn in dusty pink that I knew would one day become a hat. So I made another one! It's on the smaller side which is perfect because I have a small head and it is SUPER CUTE. Pink somehow seems to go with everything, which is awesome. And so here you have it. two sisters. two Schwimmen.
