How about a hat?

Tada! Something other than socks!
One of my coursemates at Uni found out I could knit the other week, and so I got the typical question of:

"Oh, could you knit me a... ?"

Of course I couldn't say no, as I love any excuse to knit, and as I am trying to improve my hat knitting skills, I figured this would be quite beneficial to me too.

So here it is! A striped hat for a 2-year old in the colours of the requested football team...

Pattern: My own.
Yarn: James C. Brett DK
Needles: 4mm circular

This was so fun to knit - It was quick and easy, and I learnt how to jogless stripes in the round, and how to carry yarn up the back of the work in the round as well :-)
I couldn't have done it without the help of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's Knitting Rules - it provided lots of useful tips, tricks and advised measurements! :-)
I'm hoping the recipient will be as happy with it as I am!


  1. Oh, it's lovely!!! I am sure they will love it, too! :o)

  2. It's fab! Aren't you a clever girl!!?


Thanks for stopping by!
