Both hat and shoes can be knit with just one skein of Lotus Yarns Cashmere. What better way to indulge a new person than with the ultimate luxury fiber. Both hat and shoes knit up very quickly, great for last minute gifts, knit just the hat, just the booties, or knit them both to match!
16 stitches and 24 rows in four inches in stockinette stitch on US 8 needles.
I started knitting in the long cold winters of Armenia while serving in the Peace Corps. Knitting was a way for me to keep some remaining shreds of sanity. My first knitting projects were small toys that I would hide in my friends homes when I went to visit them...Ok, maybe knitting fed my lack of sanity.
