My First Hat

I decided to take up knitting and wanted to start slow, and although I have bought Stephen Wests Old Forge to make, I decided to make a few things like kids toys etc. However I thought enough of the kids things, and made this, my first ever hat. I thought whilst I was knitting it it would never turn into a hat as it seemed to be odd shaped and not at all something that would finish up as a hat, but it did. I admit, I am quite proud of it.

Small moves...

It is a great hat and I like how it covers the ears. The colour suits you so well. What kind of yarn did you use and where did you find the pattern?

Knitting hats is weird especially when knitting them bottom up. It's amazing how quickly they close up when you start the decreases. Top down looks like you're making a hat the whole time and moves along really quickly at the beginning but then slows down and you have that blasted bind off to look forward to. Which ever way you went, you did a good job and it looks great on you!

Very nice looking hat. Lots of texture but a good fit. Congratulations.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
