Penny Candy Hat

jenjoycedesign©green&grey

Mossy green & grey is my thing lately. But whereas before I was unsure I’d like this colorway for a Penny Candy Winter pullover, now that I did the ‘hat test’ I am utterly certain I LOVE the colorway, and enough to knit a whole sweater with it!   Boy oh boy does that colorway tickle a spot for me, evoking rich growth of moss on the trunks of the Black Oaks & Firs all around the woods where I live.

Oh, did I mention that I submitted the Penny Candy Hat pattern ? No ? It must have totally slipped my mind !  You can find the pattern on Yarnings HERE and on Ravelry HERE .  Penny Candy Hat was designed to be a gauge test for the upcoming pattern Penny Candy Winter pullover , but now I am thinking it’s just lovely as a hat pattern sold all by itself.

This little blue striped one I’ve made for someone who is turning Twelve this coming week , and which I will show off modeled on her birthday.  Besides lace band, and lot of fun stripes, to match her sweater, it has a pinto toorie !
