Hi all!
I've been lurking here for awhile.  I just made this hat yesterday and I am so thrilled with the way it turned out that I wanted to share.  It's my first FI attempt and is a xmas gift for my 10 year old niece. 





The pattern is called Dancing Grannies, but I'm going to tell her it's Dancing Aunties.

I used Lopi yarn and found the pattern here.

Thank you so much!  It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.  You just have to be sure when you are carrying both colors that you always keep the same one on the top and the other on the bottom.  I am a continental knitter so I carried the lavender yarn over my index finger and the blue on my ring finger. 

I love the Lopi yarn.  It was the first time I ever used it.  It's so thick and chunky and warm.

That's such a unique intarsia pattern.  Very cool.  I picture a little old grannie wearing it over her purple hair.  But I'm sure it will look wonderful on your niece.  She's a lucky girl and you are a talented knitter!
