My first naturally dyed Oxford Kitchen Yarn skein is of an Aran weight and in putty - and is meant to work well with mahoosive Zara scarf (so big it hides my face) and my new shoes from Esprit. Because of the scarf, it is quite tricky to find a beanie hat that will stand out - and may have to leave a pompom out this time, I am not sure it would suit the style of the scarf. Here is my current selection.
I pinned Magnolia (a free Ravelry pattern - whooohoo) ages ago - and I do like the simple pattern, and the cable work. It should be a quick knit, but it may be too masculine for the look I am after.
Would any selection of mine be complete without a Jared Flood design? Here is Bray Cap - with a very intricate cable work, maybe too much to compete with the big scarf - but a beautiful design nonetheless.

And finally Starr which I have had in my favourite list for a while - it is a bit more feminine than the others, and of course seeing it knitted in a similar colourway to my skein is always helpful. I am not too sure about the slouch - and also there seems to be comments about the size of it (as in it is too big). I actually own Misty by Kim Hargreaves, and therefore could make use of the patterns I bought - a very strange concept.
Looking at my selection, I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what I want to achieve. My mittens are nearly done - so hopefully I will be ready to cast on one of these beanie hats soon. Unless anyone has other suggestion I should consider! I am all ears!
Linking up to Ginny's today.
