Fig Cottage. Turns out the lovely lady who writes this blog recently posted her first published pattern, a cute little toque called Kitimat. I decided it might be a neat idea for me to knit one for myself (newbie knitwear designers gotta look out for each other, after all) but then I had an even more brilliant idea: why not knit one for Kate, then it's like a crazy mashup of two of her fibery friends, one who designed it and one who knit it.
I used Patons Classic Wool - when I saw this fantastic greeny yellow colour (called Lemongrass) I couldn't say no to it, and I thought it looked pretty awesome (dare I say "modern"?) with the dark grey mix. Of course a huge pom pom is a must.
What matters most is that Kate loved it.
