Knit Project #11: Mama's Ocean Blue Hat



When it's in the teens outside, you're dreaming of the beach, and you wake up to the sun shining over a "white sand beach," what better way to celebrate the beauty of winter while staying warm than with an ocean-inspired wool beanie and a hot pink fish woven wrap?

  • Used US #13, 16" circular knitting needles since I didn't have US #10.5 circular knitting needles.
