FO: Pauline in Green

You may not know this, but it's incredibly hard to take a picture of the side of your head. Well, at least, if you don't have a tripod (or you have one, but have been too lazy to set one up during the few minutes of sunshine that I get after work each night (if it's not raining, of course).
The above is my excuse for not previously showing pictures of the very lovely Pauline in Green that I finished knitting over a month ago.

Evidence that taking a picture of the side of your head is a wee bit complicated.

The hat is a super quick knit, and the little garter stitch ties are just adorable. The hat formation is rather ingenious, in my opinion (although Knitting Kninja may not be the first to do this; I don't know): you knit back and forth on what will eventually by the front of the hat, and then the back is formed through a short row. Next, you knit the garter-stitch ties, which are so fast and lovely, especially in Malabrigo!

Progress: Green Pauline

You use applied i-cord for the hem (if you haven't tried this before, the pattern gives clear instructions!), and i-cord for the flowers. The leaves are knit separately, and then the flowers and leaves are sewn on.

I chose to sew on only one flower, as I thought having three of them was a little much.

As I mentioned above, I used Malabrigo Worsted, about half a skein of Verde Esperanza. The flower is made from a sample skein I purchased on Etsy from Zen Yarn Garden. It is the Superwash Sock Yarn in Rosy Pink, and I thought it was a nice compliment to the vibrant green Malabrigo.

I haven't decided if I will keep this, or gift it, but for now, it's lovely to look at.
