Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Billed beanie Link to website or photo thepepperminttree.typepad.com/thepepperminttree/2011/09/billed-beanie-pattern.html What are you most proud of? how totally cute these hats are-and quite warm too What advice would you give someone starting this project? the first one seemed a bit short; so, if you want it cover your ears, knit the body of the hat a little longer-pattern says 4.5 inches-we went as far as 5.5 on one of them. Of course, check gauge. We also used size 13 US as I did not have 15US needles. I found double points to be too packed when starting with them instead of using the circular-easy to drop stitches unless your needles are pretty long. Go Button shopping and see what super cool embellishments you can put on your hat!
