Time for Fast Hats

So, it's getting down to it here, friends.  Let's talk about some quick knitting projects, shall we?

Remember all of that gorgeous Malabrigo that arrived last week?  Well, my sweet friend Laura used some to crank out some fabulous Super Simple Baby Hats.
The pattern is a freebie from Purl Soho, the yarn is lusciously soft, and you get to make a pom pom.  The pattern is written for babies, but it is easy as pie to make them larger.  Just cast on more stitches in multiples of two and work a longer tube.  There isn't even any decreasing!  

Laura doubled the Malabrigo Merino Worsted and used a US10.5.  We should have everything you need at the shop right now, including the pom pom makers.  It's even cute baby-approved!
Thanks for the inspiration and the photos, Laura!  Stay tuned for more quick hats...
