View Full Version : My Forever Hat....

Now I know it didn't take forever; it just felt like it... LOL!
It's the easiest hat, just like the Knitting Harlot said in her book but she forgot to mention that it takes time... time.... time....
So I started knitting a swatch - made it too long, of course - 62 sts,,, cut it down to 51 sts and knit for 4 days straight. (I can usually do a hat a day... 2 at the most)
I started running out of the dark blue that I began with so I added a nice little yellowy green stripe just to perk things up.
She said to draw yarn thru the top stitches on one side but my hat looked so big to me I decided the yarn had better go thru sts about 2" below the cap... hence the gathered top.
I'm just glad it's done....
