First Holiday Gifts

benji hat

My first Hannkukah present is DONE! I know it doesn’t look like much, but my nephew needs a new hat (his little keppie grew) so he gets a brand new Rikke hat. I used Malabrigo Rios (one skein was more than enough) and I think it should go with whatever colour snow suit he end up swathed in this year. As always, the project modifications are in the Ravelry Project Notes.

The hat seemed to go over well with their mom, it has a lot of stretch and fits the kids heads (see last year’s Rikke – I never managed to corner my niece and get a picture of her in her Rikke). The garter stitch might keep them warm (it’s hard to know, they’re kids, the quality of the feed-back is limited).
