Circular Knit Lab: Hats Four Ways »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Whimsical, Cute, Casual, Outdoorsy
For the red hat, I used Great Adirondack Yarn Company's merino bulky cranberry yarn. For the blue hat, it's Merino 12 Layers merino wool lapis yarn.
What was your inspiration?
Caitlyn is my second granddaughter, and because my knitting skills have progressed, I thought I'd challenge myself and make her a hat. I made not only one, but two hats because the first one was a bit large. Stefanie Japel provided excellent instruction!
What are you most proud of?
The ease with which I made the hats!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be very mindful that making these easy-to-knit hats is an addictive experience. I'm now thinking about all of the people -- big and small -- for whom I can make a hat!
