FO: Slouchy Hat
1 Attachment(s)
So, I needed a break from the afghan, and knowing I wouldn't finish it in time anyways, I made this for the fair instead.

It was my first experience knitting in the round, my first experience with cables, and my first experience with double pointed needles. And, all in all, I am quite pleased with it. It is the first of my 'winter set' I am working on, I will mainly use it for ice-skating. Coming soon will be scarf (WIP), legwarmers, and fingerless mittens (or gloves, if I can find a pattern).
I have yet to order my double pointed needles, the ones I used on this project were 'homemade'. No comment.
This is little sis posing for me. It is slightly too large on her, but....

Here is a pic from the back. (Sorry, I couldn't get two pics on the same post.)
Oh, yes, and I made it in about four hours, would have been quicker had I the proper tools. :oops:

Wow! This doesn't look like a first-time anything! More like a pro. Super job on the hat, and I bet it'll get you a ribbon for sure at the fair.

Cute model, too!

Beautiful hat and a very successful venture into knitting in the round and cables. It looks like you've been doing this for years. It's going to be part of a gorgeous set. Well done!

I would have never guessed that it was your first experience, it looks so professional. Congrats on job well done!

very nice, I am about to knit my first slouchy hat for my daughter, I am thinking of doing this pattern instead of the one I was going to do. Thanks for posting.
What type of increase did you use for the M1's, may I ask?
