Viole Waffles

It’s 49 days until Christmas (32 to Channukah – eek!) and we’re thinking about smallish, giftable projects. We just finished this great hat, Violet Waffles, with one skein of Mineville Merino DK. The yarn is soft, bouncy, very comfortable, and machine washable (makes it harder for them to wreck it). The pattern didn’t look like much, but it fits amazing, looks amazing, and is a great hat for people who aren’t into super flashy knitterly designs (men, teens, designers).

To sub other yarns, you could try 2 skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash Sport, one skein of  Madeline Tosh Merino DK, or 2 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
