It’s hat making season! I made two more “Hat No. 5” Hats. Both of these were made as written with 84 stitches cast on for a stretchy finished circumference of just over 19″. I like that this pattern is interesting, but it’s only a six row pattern repeat so it’s short enough to easily keep track of where you are in the pattern.
I also knit up a yellow hat with a broken rib stitch pattern. This is the stitch pattern where you alternate knit rounds with *k1, p1* rounds. I think it creates a simple but attractive hat .
These hat use up more yarn from that half-filled bin of mystery acrylic accumulated over the past decade I’ve been trying to use up knitting hats for the 500 Hats Project. It’s funny – I can remember why I bought the burgundy and gray yarns, but I have no idea why I bought that golden-yellow yarn (it may have been a sale or clearance induced purchase). I’m on target to empty the bin of mystery acrylic this fall and I’ll keep posting hats as I go. ~Happy Knitting.
