I had planned to write while I was on vacation and I uploaded these photo’s before I left. Now I am back and I never wrote a thing! These are the two hats for charity that I finished before I left. The first is the Helix Striped Hat by Joan L. Hamer. It’s from the knitting pattern a day calendar. I made it with scraps of Vanna’s choice. It is sized for a child.
“If I had to think of the perfect cap in terms of the actual knitting, it would contain no ribbing, no purling, no sewing up, and no gazillion yarn ends to darn in. This cap eliminates all of these and looks great to boot.” From the pattern.
And it was all that! A fun hat to make.
This one is the Easy Roll Brim Knit Hat by Laurie Perry. I made this with a chunky purpley-blue yarn I got at the thrift store. Fun, fast and easy.
The pattern is available for free from Crazy Aunt Purl.
This one fits an adult. I have some vacation pictures on my flickr to share.
more to come……
