Fall time hats

October 21st, 2010 Posted in FOs, Knitting

This is my Gwen Slouch pattern, knitted in bulky yarn (can’t remember what yarn — bought it in Blacksburg, VA February-ish while E was getting tatted). I knitted this on a size 9 circ, and just eliminated one pattern repeat.

“Vintage” Caps hat I knit for myself that E has stolen. Simple k1,p1 rib for a few rows, then stockinette all the way around, on a size 7 circ. This is knitted with Lion Brand wool-ease acrylic/wool blend. Lots of this yarn left… more Caps hats to come!

This colorful one is again simple k1,p1 rib for a few rows then stockinette all the way around until I felt like stopping. I casted on 54 stitches with a size 9 circ, then switched to size 11 when I started the stockinette. Super easy bulky beanie! I believe sometimes it’s necessary to just let beautiful yarn speak for itself in simple stockinette…. Also great for mindless TV watching. : )
