FO: Verity

Another finished object! This was my 'quick win' project which I cast on earlier in the month because I was beginning to feel like I would never finish anything and so all those things I was itching to cast on would never get their chance. I was hoping that a quick knit would help me find some motivation to get going with some finishing things off.

Verity did knit up very quickly, and before the week was out, it was almost finished, - just waiting for me to sew on the button. Unfortunately I then put it down and forgot all about it!

I picked this hat up again last Saturday (encouraged by the finishing touches I'd just put to the Lace Ribbon Scarf) and quickly popped on that button. It's been pretty dark here of an evening so photography was saved until yesterday when Hobnob and I popped out to the park to get these shots...

The hat, modeled with my lovely new winter coat and a slight squint. I love this coat a lot, although I don't love that it's from New Look and therefore seems to be somewhat lacking in quality. I ordered online because the one in store was damaged. This one has a hole in the pocket lining but is (seemingly) otherwise OK.

I'm very pleased with the button choice for this hat. This is a 26p button from the haberdashery stand at the local indoor market. Not so clever was sewing it on the inside of the hat, which I did initially, for reasons unknown.

I also love the textured stitch on the brim of this hat. 

The only thing I don't love about this hat is my uncertainty that I am wearing it right :)

Pattern: Verity by Ysolda Teague.

Yarn: Malabrigo Twist in colourway Olive. Bought online at First 4 Yarns.

Mods: None.

Project: Online at Ravelry.


  1. If it is keeping your ears warm, then I think you're wearing it correctly :D

  2. I made that hat and I wear it just like you do. I made one for my mum and she wears it perched on the back of her head in a very impractical and non-warming matter. But I leave her to it. I've noticed a lot of older women wear their berets in a more jaunty fashion than us younger folk.

    It is a very good hat.
