I was actually able to knit this hat in one day. I guess I’m getting faster. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. It’s an original design… or I guess a modified design between a sweater pattern and a hat.
This is a hat I’ve started in an all over 2×2 rib. I love this color- bright blue. It should work up quickly.
I finally got my husband to agree to wear something I knit for him. I pulled it out 3 times because it wasn’t wide enough. It’s just a 2×2 rib. It’s not curling – which is something that happened the last time I tried knitting him a scarf. It might take a while to actually get this long enough. At least it’s a mindless knit that I can do when watching TV or reading a book.
I had my own pattern in my head when I was making this hat. I started with a 2×2 rib on the rim and kept three of them as cables, while using reverse stockinette stitch. I think though I should have just used a garter stitch because while I was knitting it the hat started going away from me on the needles, instead of coming towards me. It was kind of like I was knitting it inside out. Weird. I think I should have used less stitches or used smaller needles also. But all in all I think it’s a pretty cool looking hat.
If anyone thinks a pattern is worth writing, leave me a message, and I’ll type it out for you and post it.
I took this photo a couple of days ago. Then I decided I should really work on it. I finished the first one today.
Back and Front.
The pattern is called arden, a free pattern on Ravelry. I cut the pattern short, I only repeated the pattern 4 times instead of 6. It’s supposed to go up to the elbows, but I made it to go only go up halfway.
