a pink rosebud.

pink rosebud
modeled on me and raveled here

…an email landed in my inbox last thursday – my friend shari’s sister has breast cancer and she starts chemo tomorrow. could I recommend some hat patterns?

well of course I could (and I did) – and I quickly grabbed one for myself.

I had fave’d rosebud as soon as it was released (I have a “few” skeins of stash yarn that would work perfectly for the pattern) and I loved having a great reason to buy the pattern and excuse a few of my other knitting goals to make room for a hat.

jared flood does not disappoint. the pattern is beautifully laid out, clearly written, and results in a lovely finished hat. (check out my ravelry project page to see the few changes I made).

I’m bummed that the hat doesn’t really look pink in any of the photos. but trust me, it is!

I’m looking forward to knitting it again (for me 🙂

in process – through the first repeat of the chart

lovely decrease detail…
