It doesn't scream "pithy" but it is cute



I don't know why this pattern is called the Mary Jane Pithy Hat. I mean, the original hat didn't have a pith on it. But whatever, it is cute. I read the pattern wrong and thought for the slouch on the original I had to knit 11" instead of 8". It was the other way around so I got a really floppy hat, which is fine. It is more my style that way. I used my Blackberry Patch Alpaca I got at Stitches West and still have some leftover. It will be really warm with it being made out of alpaca!

I like the hat and with long hair thyere's nothing better than to tuck your hair into a nice roomy beret! Does the alpaca itch around the rim?

I know this post is ancient, but it just popped up on a search I did so I thought I comment on where I got the name from :) The pattern came about when a friend asked me to make her a hat "like MJ's in Spiderman" I was in a rush, so came up with some short and to-the-point(aka: pithy) instructions :)
