Pattern based on the one in the book “Knitting Beyond Scarves”. I’m not sure what the yarn is, exactly, although I think it’s a wool blend. It’s recycled thrift-store sweater yarn!:teehee:
Very nice !
Have you got anyone in mind to give it to?
Love the hat, nice and snuggly–nice job!! Great thrift shop find!!
It looks great!
[B] I have to get that book so I can get the pattern.
It loo great![/B]
Nice hat! That yarn worked great. Don’t you just love thrift shops. They are a good source of many knitting supplies.
Great job x
It’s so easy, you can probably do it without a pattern! Basically all you do is knit a garter stitch rectangle about 18 inches long (I don’t remember how many I cast on), and then sew the cast-on and bound-off edges together to make a tube. Then tread a piece of yarn around the top edge to gather it, tie a small knot, and weave in the loose ends. Fold the bottom up a couple inches (mine’s actually folded twice, it came out a little long) and that’s it!
Yes, it’s very snuggly, and I’m not sure if I’ll keep it for myself or give it away. I have plenty more of the same yarn, so I might make a matching scarf for a gift!
I made this hat for a newborn baby! TODAY! It only took a few hours! My own pattern. I couldn’t find a pattern for a new born, so I made this one up as I went along.
