Stitch pattern for the body of the hat. Rnd 1: K all stitches Rnd 2: P all stitches Rnds 3 and 4: **p2, k2**
Both the stitch pattern and color make me think of blackberries. I know. It looks blue. It isn't. It's a deep shade of purple. I took several photos in different places, in different light, with and without a flash and I can't get it to show the real color. The photo of blackberries was taken a few years ago in mid-August It'll be a few months yet before the blackberries are ripe!
I am a wife, the mother of four grown sons, and nana to five grandchildren. I work part-time as a librarian/ archivist at a university library. I enjoy knitting socks, hats, mittens and other items for charity, reading, hand quilting, growing old-fashioned flowers, and bird watching.
