Scarf and Hat

I made this scarf in one day. I used the last of this yarn on it. It’s more of an infant/toddler size scarf. It is a basic garter stitch using size 15 needles and two worsted weight yarn strands. It’s 30 inches long. It feels cuddly.

I knit this hat last month sometime, I don’t think I ever posted it because it wasn’t with the rest of my finished knits. It’s an adult size 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.

DSCN0969 DSCN0971I 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.

 

Uncrossed Cables 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.

Fulfilled Order

It took me a while to actually finish this order. It was for Christmas, so I knew I had a lot of time. I finished two hats, two mittens, and one set of booties months ago, and here’s the second one.

I knitted a pair of white mittens like these, but the white ones are smaller because the weight is different.

I just realized that this hat reminds me of Charlie Brown.
