Modification Mondays: gurmanfravor's Sunny Day Hat

Original Pattern: Rainy Day Fingerless Gloves and Three Tams Knitter Extraordinaire: gurmanfravor Mods: Took the construction for the hat from Three Tams, and added the cheerful and bright colourwork from the fingerless gloves. (details on her Ravelry project page) What Makes this Awesome: I'm particularly impressed with this fabulous mash up- two great patterns combined into one! And who doesn't need a shot of cheery colours and a remind that spring will come back eventually? I love this hat. I especially love the sun on the crown of the tam!And I'm willing to bet that the stranded colourwork helps make the hat extra warm. Great job!
