Sandy knit this adorable houndstooth hat from the Winter '13/'14 issue of Knit Simple Magazine. She knit is as a Christmas gift for her granddaughter and it turned out simply adorable! Sandy knit the hat in the exact yarn the pattern called for, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, in the same colors. She already had it in her stash!
