when i met my half sister Suni in April, i noticed a few things. First, she's taller than me. by quite a lot. she has great skin, tan but with a rosy hue. and she's active. she plays tennis and skis. (she also has a weird sock thing going, which i highly approve of.) anyway, it gets cold in japan. so for suni i made her a skull hat. nothing fancy, just something to keep her head warm. i chose a shell pattern because i thought it was pretty and the texture added just a little something. i ran out of yarn at the end so i had some random skein of purple/blue that matched and used that. i still think it's rather cute.
the pattern was easy to follow, no mishaps, other than running out at the end. i also didn't do the last row, three rows of the ribbing seemed sufficient. i also did not use the K and I hooks, i used J and H instead. it's a rather bulky hat at the end so don't use too thick of a yarn.
