Finished my 2nd hat

Today is my ONE WEEK anniversary of knitting. :slight_smile:
I finished my second hat “early” this morning. I had intended to make it for my daughter in law BUT it will fit my 3 year old grandson.
The first hat I did said to knit for 8 inches and it was huge yarn. I thought it was funny that this pattern said to go 6 inches and it was very small yarn. I was thinking the teacher should have known that it would be very small. HUM! :slight_smile:
The photos are the last two…the blue hat:

Good lookin’ hat! Funny how things turn out sometimes isn’t it. :smiley:

GREAT job!

Was your gauge the same as the pattern called for? Sometimes you have to go up or down a needle size to get it to match, depending on your personal knitting habits.

GREAT JOB! I can’t believe you’ve only been knitting for ONE WEEK! I just started making hats (because I was scared before) and I’ve been knitting for almost 3 years. I guess I’m just a chicken. :lol:

Sandra, Kelly and Liz,
Thanks for liking my hat. The teacher is the one who suggested doing a hat after I practiced for about an hour. I was thinking a dish cloth. LOL.
She had me pick out the yarn. The pattern she gave me is a Multi Gauge Beanie Hat for teens and adults. You just follow the pattern according to the stitch per inch chart.
The teacher gave me the needles she said I would need and showed me on the pattern which to follow.
Oh well. Hopefully Drew will like it. LOL.

One week and two hats!! Impressive first projects. :thumbsup:

Very cute! I’m so impressed. I’m still trying to get up the nerve to try a hat…

Thanks for liking my hat and for all of your help,

It takes nerve to jump out of an airplane. A knitted hat is yarn and needles. No nerve needed! :wink:

Give a hat a whirl. Seeing you know how to knit it will be a breeze for you.

Earthchick, what’s there to be scared of?? What’s the WORST that can happen…Im sending you some BRAVERY!! :pray:

:cheering: :cheering: WTG…wonderful work!! LOVE, Love the hat!! I thought that I would pass along my favorite hat tutorial, which simply gives very simple (once you read them over once ;)) directions on how to make a hat with any size yarn for anyone’s head…I use it for all of my hats…works like a charm :wink:
earthchick…give it a go, knitting hats is fun, fun, fun :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

Thanks for liking my hat and for the hat tutorial. It looks like Greek to me right now but I’m sure one day I’ll understand it. I saved it.

I promise once u read over it a few times…perhaps after knitting a bit more…it will be a great reference :wink: ! You are doing a fantastic job :happydance: :happydance:

I’m sure it will seem VERY simple one day soon and I’ll give it a try. Math really has always been hard for me and anything with numbers intimidates me.
I grabbed my yarn and practiced a slip knot to see if I remember how to do it and I practiced casting on and even tried a few rows of knit and then purl. :slight_smile:
Fun, fun, fun.

Girl…u sound like me…I detest #'s…yuck!! I’m happy to hear that you are having fun knitting…that’s the most important thing :wink:
