One hat to rule them all

Can you tell I just watched the whole Lord of the Rings marathon of movies? Well, I did. We do it every Thanksgiving weekend. I miss Frodo and Sam and even Gollum/Sméagol. I do not, however, miss the turkey. I can do without turkey for a while now, thanks. so. much.
What I can't get enough of, apparently, is this new Figheadh Fundamental Watch Cap. This makes the tenth in the Fundamentals series--our line of patterns designed for multiple yarn weights and lots of sizes. This pattern is the topper in more ways than one. I put in numbers for sizes premie to XL adult and for six yarn weights from superfine all the way up to super bulky (yeah, a premie hat in super bulky yarn--try it--I challenge ya!)
In the layout above you can see a premie hat in Pagewood Farm St Elias; kids' hats in Noro Kureyon (thanks Shirley!), Schaefer Heather, Hazel Knits DK, and Mini Mochi; and adult hats in Cascade Lana Bambu, Butternut Woolens Homegrown, Noro Kochoran, with the biggest of all in Malabrigo Chunky.

Here's a little taste of mine and Natalie's little bayside photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. She's wearing (L to R) Marr Haven Sport, Butternut Woolens Homegrown, Noro Kochoran, and Cascade Lana Bambu.

I sign off with Nat the wood elf wearing the lovely lavender Marr Haven hat. Headed to the Grey Havens, Nat? Have a nice trip!
Whew! Tired out from tipping my hat (chuckle) to all these wonderful yarn companies. Gotta go now--see ya next time!

This was a fun pattern to knit up. Did I ever send you a picture of the preemie hat in bulky yarn? If not, let me know!
