FO: my first hat!
I'd like to thank all you kind-hearted KHers for helping me get through the challenge of knitting my first hat. Remember, I just started knitting less than 3 weeks ago, so yes, a hat was a huge challenge for me.

I'm not sure if it's going to fit my husband - depends on how much it's willing to stretch. I am a really tight knitter, so my gauge was all off. If anything, this has taught me the importance of gauge! If it doesn't fit my husband (who has a very large head, but no hair), I'll be doing a lottery for my family members. I really want to keep it in the family so I can see it again.

This is the pattern I used: the marsan watchcap!


It fits! Sort of. It's a little small, but it will work. (Isn't he cute?)





Again, many thanks for all the help!

What a great cap! I love the way the decreases create a swirl at the top. I can't believe you've only been knitting 3 weeks. Nice work!

I've seen this pattern over at Ravelry, I think! It is my favorite pattern! It is a pattern that is not over the top! Subtle! I must make one soon! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work with us!
Nice photos!
