I actually bought this yarn and pattern at Lettuce Knit here in Toronto when I was taking a crochet class over the summer (my first finished crochet project will be coming up in a post soon!). The store had put together a little kit with the pattern and all the necessary yarn, and as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for Lia. It's sweet, adorable, and totally girly -- just like her.
Even though I'm really happy with this hat, the interesting thing about making it was noticing how out of practice I am when it comes to knitting. I have been knitting for most of my life and it's always been my go-to craft. Lately, however, I have been drawn to other things -- like crochet and sewing -- so my knitting mojo has been a little low. Knitting skills that used to come so naturally took a bit of work this time around. It's made me determined to get back into it and beef up my skills again.
If you're looking to make a watermelon hat of your own for a special little lady in your life, you can find the pattern here.
