Another homemade hat

This was my travel knitting for a recent trip to Manchester:

I've made many Gretels before, but all have been gifted away.  In the past I’ve always made the middle size, but for some reason this time I decided to knit the smallest size. This turned out  to be quite small. It took some fierce blocking to get it to the size I wanted! It just about covers my ears.

I used Fyberspates Scrumptious Aran. I love the colour but it's not a soft as I thought it would be. It's still lovely though.


  1. Lovely. I love Gretel. The cables twist and converge in such a satisfying way.

    I just bought myself some Scrumptious Chunky... I might make a hat too.

  2. so pretty!! It's amazing what some good blocking can do. I guess the small size is really really small!
