Adult Scarf

I thought that this yarn and this stitch pattern would be fitting for a man. It seems I have a lot of yarn for girls, but not so much that suit boys. I guess that’s fitting, seeing as I have two toddler girls.

I used size 15 needles and two strands of worsted weight yarn. I think it took me two-three days. Since I didn’t have to think very much about the stitch pattern, I got to read “Bringing it to the Table” by Wendell Berry.

Fair Isle Red and White Hat

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.

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.

These are pretty awesome. They go pretty quick. I have one done, and am just starting on the other one. I’m making it in a neon yellow that has a tinge of green in it when the light hits it. I have to say that I had to write out the chart so I could check it off, and even then, late at night, I was overthinking it and confusing myself, especially when it got to the cross over parts. I should just save myself the trouble and stop knitting after 10pm. Or knit something that doesn’t require as much brain power.
