Colonel Hathi's Elephant March Hat

I love this Rose & Lily hat pattern. I am all about the fair isle knitting and this pattern was just screaming out to be knit. The first time I saw it, it reminded me of Colonel Hathi's march in the Jungle Book movie.

I already had the sock yarn for this, so it was easy to pick it up and get started. I knit this one in the adult large size using one size larger than the pattern suggested and using the directions for the slouchy hat. I tried to get Doc to model this one for me, but he said it was a little too hipster for him. Best compliment ever! This is definitely staying in my winter wardrobe. I love it!

Until next time, may all your days be filled with fairy dust!
