PS Socks and a Wee Flap Cap

Fortissima Socks Fortissima Socks
Fortissima Socks

Pattern: Basic cuff down on 64 stitches
Yarn: Fortissima Colori Socka Color (#9095) ( stash yarn- I think DC'd color)
Needles: 2 sock on 1 circular 2.25mm

These are the perfect socks for Project Spectrum...gray, white and several shades of blue. Aren't they great with jeans??
I have found that most people (especially those who don't knit) are much more impressed with this type of self patterning yarn than any fancy sock stitch pattern!!

And then when I was just getting some projects under control I saw this adorable flap cap pattern designed by Tammy , who blogs at So Now What , and had to make one for Dulaan. Isn't it the cutest hat? I love that nice warm flap covering the ears AND neck and it only took one evening to make!

Pattern: In a Flap Cap by Tammy Wright
Yarn: 1 skein sage (color 362) Silja sock yarn (Thank you Beth) and leftover Trekking XXL from these socks (one strand of each)
Needles: 4.0 mm 16" circular

The only change I made to the pattern was to increase the total stitch count to 70 because of my smaller gauge. My hat is still only 16" around, but it is quite stretchy and I'm sure will fit a little child.
Thank you for writing up your wonderful pattern Tammy!
