So I think I will actually be publishing a FREE pattern a little sooner than I thought! I finished my bulk of holiday knitting a week or so ago and decided to cast on a simple little rib hat all for myself. It should have been a quick and painless little basic knit that would help to fill the void in my wardrobe. What SHOULD have been easy turned into frogging the project 3 times!
Im not working from a pattern but knew how to work out how many stitches I needed for my cast on…well the first time around the hat seemed much too big, so I took it out only to realize try #2 was too small. Try #3 got a little bit bigger but not big enough…
So now after all my pains to begin this project I will begin again…. To be continued….
The above post was written about a month ago- since then I ended up making 3 more hats for some young friends of mine for Hannukah along with racing through the last big holiday knit that was on my list (more to that in a separate post!) so this hat has still not seen the light of day… Instead i have been working on a Brooklyn Tweed scarf I have been dying to start and a beautiful baby shower knit…. That’s rotten pattern is still a work in progress too….😂
