Caitlyn's Hats

Project Description

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!

What you will need

  • 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.

These are great! I can't wait to make one!
SewSeeny answered:
Thanks! I think you'll really enjoy making the hat, especially since it's relatively quick and easy...and the end result can be quite nice.
mamasu8 asked:
I'm ready to order yarn..and need to know yardage for projects?
SewSeeny answered:
Good question. The instructions didn't specify, but I used a bit less than half a skein of yard. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
IrishPogue asked:
Both lovely...I especially like how the stitch definition pops with the blue-ish yarn :)
SewSeeny answered:
Thanks, and I agree. The blue hat, because of the characteristics of the yarn, really showcases the pattern.
