I find Tales of Endearment blogger Natalie Joos impossibly adorable, but this also happens to be one of my all-time favorite photos from Vanessa’s blog — Natalie in a subdued-yet-rule-breaking, season-spanning combo of a white skirt, incredible wool toggle coat and charcoal grey beanie. It’s an outfit that says she sees the light of Spring at the end of Winter’s tunnel. But mostly I just really love that hat. Neither of the two photos tells us anything concrete about what’s actually going on with it, knitwise, other than that it’s a bulky yarn knitted with a bit of purl texture on the body. I’m thinking all we’d need do to get the same effect is tamper with Audrey’s stitch counts and knit it in Quince and Co’s Puffin in Kittywake.
And now that I’ve typed that, I won’t be able to avoid doing it.
