Impressed (and somewhat jealous) of the hat I made our boss earlier in the season, Esther decided she had to have an Emily-made hat for herself! After I convinced her to choose something other than the same pattern I used for Gary, we came up with this slightly slouchy look for her. The pattern is katherine by Erin Archer (available for free on her blog). I sent Esther to Purl Soho to choose her own yarn and was so thrilled with what she chose. Firstly, the color is magnificent. The blue/purple is so rich and has so much depth to it! Secondly, its cashmere(!!!) and was soooo lovely to knit. It is called Anzula For Better or Worsted and the color is Periwinkle. Only one skein was needed.
