Not only is Knitteroo's Jenny a super-quick knit, it's also snuggly to wear. And when I say "super quick", I mean #10 needles and doubled-up Mmmmmmmmalabrigo worsted-weight. Yep, we're talking a single evening's worth of knitting. As for snuggly, this hat hugs the head very gently and fits over the ears easily, if you like.
I made this one for my younger daughter for Christmas to coordinate with her new coat. I may do a second version of this hat without the bow. Instead, how about a couple of decorative buttons or a vintage brooch?
