I Knit a Hat


This is what I accomplished this week on the knitting front.


Or back.


It's a bulky weight yarn. I used size 13 needles. Cast on 48 stitches. Did a 2 x 2 ribbing for 2 inches. Increased by 2 stitches for 50 stitches total. Worked until the piece measured 7 inches. Then decreased by 5 stitches every row until 5 stitches remained.

(That was for me, in case I ever want to replicate this hat. It's easier to find it online, although my knitting notebooks are fairly organized.)

  2. Great job Liz - nothing could be nicer if you've got a cold wet bald head.

  3. Well done ... wish I could wear wool ... and thus can't wear so many things - would love a hat like that during winter - so very pretty - but not for me - cheers Hilary

  6. That's a nice hat. I love knitting with chunky yarn. Mostly because it goes so fast. XD

  7. Smart idea using that big ball of yarn on a stick for pictures and to show off the hat.

    1. Not my idea. Another blogger had a tutorial on how to do it. You start with a Styrofoam ball and wind the yarn around it.

  8. I like the colors! I know what you mean about things being easier to find on the blog. I use mine to find some of my recipes sometimes.

  10. Liz,

    Fabulous job! It won't be long before you can put that hat to good use. I like cool weather but not cold. Unfortunately, I can't have one without the other. :)

  11. I love that hat! I have my knitting needles ready to go as soon as I finish up my cross-stitch that I'm working on right now. I have soooo many things going on and so many to finish.

    1. I like having a couple projects going at the same time. Can't wait to see your cross stitch.
