I (Alane) visited family in October and as my knitting project I took and finished this oh-so-cute stripey hat for my great-nephew Alec. My niece sent me the photos yesterday telling me they had been a bit of a challenge to make “snot free” as wee Alec has a bad cold. He looks pretty cheerful even so…maybe it’s the hat.

The yarn is Diamond Luxury superwash merino. The pattern is “Collegiate Hat” by Spud & Chloe (on Ravelry). Thanks to GBOW staffer Brenda for suggesting the fab colour combo!
