Two Charity Hats

This past weekend I knit two quick hats for charity, putting into use some remnants of YarnArt Merino de Luxe I had from other projects. The purple hat is Autumn in New York, a free pattern by Evelyn Leon, there's a KAL going on on Ravelry. The end result is a soft very beautiful beanie. Because the hat took only 37 g out of my 100 g ball, I'm tempted to knit another one or probably a slouchy version with one more repeat of the chart. 

Pattern: Autumn in New York by Evelyn Leon
Yarn: YarnArt Merino de Luxe, 37 g
Needle: 3.5 mm (brim), 4 mm (body)
Time to knit: one day

Here's the chart of the pattern I made, for easier reference:

The second hat is a repeat of a simple hat pattern I like a lot - the Waffle hat. It's meant to be a man's size, so it sits a bit slouchy on Gaby's head :). This second version proved how useful Ravelry and blog notes can be - I knit it, following my own instructions on my first Waffle hat, as written down on my Ravelry project page.

Yarn: YarnArt Merino de Luxe, 60 g
