just a few hatsSaturday, December 22, 2007
Amazing. I seem to be on some sort of post roll. I don't think I have ever posted more than two days in a row, let alone five. And, I may have a couple more before the big day.
Just a few hats I wanted to share.
First up, for my husband. I initially wanted to make this for both boys, but the small is fairly large, so it will be going to my husband instead. I have another one on the needles that will be given to my father in law.
Pattern: Inca Alpaca Garter Ridge Hat, Glorious Knitting.
Yarn: Inca Marl by Classic Elite, 3 hanks.
Needles: size 101/2, I used double points for the whole hat.
Notes: I think this hat is too cool. And done in garter stitch is super quick.
Next up. Also going to my husband.
Pattern: Simple Hat from Cables Untangled.
Yarn: Cascade 220, super wash. 2 balls.
Needles: size 7
Notes: I LOVE this hat. I mean, really love it. I want one. Maybe in chocolate. Or white.
And, for Libby. Because she wanted a hat with ear flaps and braids to match her coat.
Pattern: Thorpe, designed by Kirsten Kapur.
Yarn: Mauch Chunky, 1 ball apple, 1 ball spice.
Needles: I used 10's because I didn't have double points in 9.
Notes: This is the cutest, quickest knit ever. And of course, perfectly written. I want to make them for Birthday gifts for my kids friends. Honestly, I bet you have some chunky yarn in your stash, and the pattern is free, you could whip one up tonight. And you have to love a pattern that forces you to learn a new skill. I learned the half double crochet stitch. And, I must say, I loved it.
