Another Starr

Pattern: Starr by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Alize Pure Wool Cashmira, 100% wool, 75 g
Needle: 3 mm, 4 mm
Time to knit: 3 days

This is my second attempt at one of the most popular Kim Hargreaves hat designs - Starr. Two years ago I made one in faded pink and thicker yarn, which came out too big and heavy. I had about 80 g of purple Cashmira left from my Phildar sweater, so I figured I'd make another Starr, as I really like the pattern. IMO Cashmira is just the right weight and thickness for this pattern, this time I'm happy with the result.

The hat still needs blocking, but I've been preoccupied with another project and just set it aside the minute I finished it (which was Friday according to my Ravelry notes). But I couldn't miss the opportunity to take a few pictures of it when miss "I'm a very busy school girl" finally found a few minutes of spare time before school :)
Well, truth be told, the girl is really busy - when she's not studying German, she's preparing for a math contest or taking part in one, or attending zumba classes, or ice skating, or out with friends, and of course most of the time busy at school.
Happy high school years (sigh) :)

    1. Kim is my most favorite individual designer, you can't go wrong with her!

  2. An extraordinary job you've done on this. It's fantastic. And it goes so well with your daughter's red jacket. She is a beauty.
