FO: my first hat!

I’d like to thank all you kind-hearted KHers for helping me get through the challenge of knitting my first hat. Remember, I just started knitting less than 3 weeks ago, so yes, a hat was a huge challenge for me.

[COLOR=“Silver”]I’m not sure if it’s going to fit my husband - depends on how much it’s willing to stretch. I am a really tight knitter, so my gauge was all off. If anything, this has taught me the importance of gauge! If it doesn’t fit my husband (who has a very large head, but no hair), I’ll be doing a lottery for my family members. I really want to keep it in the family so I can see it again.[/COLOR]

This is the pattern I used: the marsan watchcap!

It fits! Sort of. It’s a little small, but it will work. (Isn’t he cute?)

Again, many thanks for all the help!

You did a brilliant job . You should be proud of it :slight_smile:

Great job!

Great hat x

It looks perfect! Nice work!:yay:

:happydance: It looks great!!

Good job! Yes, gauge can be a pain, but it’s an all important knitting tool. I understand the big headed man thing- my DBF has a HUGE head! I hope it fits him, and I’m sure he’ll love it even if it doesn’t.

pics added!

Mahvelous dahling. :thumbsup:

Very nice hat! Love the swirly top.

That looks wonderful on your husband (he’s not so bad either :eyebrow: ). Great job :thumbsup:

What a great cap! I love the way the decreases create a swirl at the top. I can’t believe you’ve only been knitting 3 weeks. Nice work!

I’ve seen this pattern over at Ravelry, I think! It is my favorite pattern! It is a pattern that is not over the top! Subtle! I must make one soon! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work with us!
Nice photos!

Great work. :thumbsup:

Very nice! Good Job
