Nigel wanted me to knit a hat for the daughter of his friends, Lola and Tom, and had something specific in mind. The Norwegian Earflap Hat, by Tiennie, came closest to the idea in his head. He said that Maya was around 8 months old, but I heard 18. Thus, it ended up a little large. But still, she apparently likes it. They call it her “Laplander Hat.” The hat came out well (shown above, in my office before it was delivered) but see how much better it looks when you have a cute model? Look at those chubby cheeks!
