So, I’m on this total beanie kick. I keep seeing different patterns and think, “I should try that one!” So, that’s what I’ve been doing. I made a gray one for my daughter. The other two aren’t quite her style but I really enjoyed making them. My favorite method of knitting is with double pointed needles so the last one (the rose colored one in the photo below) is the one I enjoyed the most. Although the crocheted gray one was the quickest to make. For the knitted hats I used Lion Brand Wool Ease. The darker rose is Heather Rose and the lighter shade of rose is Blush Heather. For the crochet hat I used Red Heart Heather Gray knitting worsted.
Tonight I started a hat called the Lucy Cloche. I saw the pattern at our local yarn store, “Yarns on First”. I’m using Cascade 220 to make it. I’m excited to do something with a little more challenge. This pattern has you use a 16″ circular needle to knit in the round. I’ve used circular needles before but just for large projects like a blanket or shawl. The first row was challenging but it’s already getting easier. Pictures and thoughts to follow.
Stitch on my friends!
