Today I finished my Hinagiku hat. I love the daisy pattern – it took a wee while to get used to, but as soon as the pattern starts to appear it’s really easy to knit.

I added a little pompom on the top to use up some extra yarn, and also because it looks a bit bare without it. I got my daughter to model it for these pictures, as I’m rubbish at taking a good selfie! 

The yarn is unbelievably soft Rowan Alpaca Colour, so I might not use this hat for everyday wear, just in case it falls apart too quickly. Such a fun knit though, and it’s nice to have a hand knitted hat again, seeing as I have lost all the previous ones I’ve made!
