Purple Baby Hat update

I sent the pattern off to the test knitter — a lovely lady in the US South — on Sunday and she’s already finished one version and almost done the second! Quick knit, indeed!

She also suggested using a sewn bind-off (a la Elizabeth Zimmermann) for this little design. I gave it a try and it worked wonderfully. Since I was just trying things out, I grabbed an odd bit of yarn. The result — using the contrasting yarn for the sewn bind-off — was very visually pleasing. I think I’ll include it as an option in the final pattern.
