I have a couple of hats I forgot to introduce you to. These are easy-to-knit hats that don’t take a lot of yarn so they are perfect for quick gifts.
First, is Georgie.
This sweet little moss stitch hat is reminiscent of the one worn by Lucy in the Narnia movie. It is a close-fitting textured beret that is suitable for a variety of yarns, including variegated colors.
Suitable for the advanced beginner to intermediate knitter, the pattern is knit in the round using basic knit and purl stitches and simple decreases. Pattern comes in two sizes to fit head circumferences of 20 – 24 inches/51-61 cm, which is suitable for older children and teens through adults. Available as a download through Ravelry.
