Swatch Hat

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm glad I practiced on the swatch hat before tackling the sweater

Q&A with SalD

Granny Jackie asked:
Love the hat! I'm going to start on a swatch hat, too. Did you have a pattern for it?
SalD answered:
No - I think I cast on about 120 stitches because I seem to recall Amy Detjen saying that in the class video and then I just knitted about the same amount as the sweater pattern to practice the hem and followed it with the squirrel pattern. Beware - after completing the hat, however, I was short a skein of yarn for the sweater and had to order another. Knitting the hat was fun, so enjoy!
