Today is my ONE WEEK anniversary of knitting.
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!
The photos are the last two…the blue hat:
Good lookin’ hat! Funny how things turn out sometimes isn’t it.
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.
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!
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!!
: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
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 ! 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.
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
