This hat was probably beyond what I should have been doing as a beginner knitter, but I saw it and WANTED it! So, this is my first official knitted FO. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
It's the Kittyville Hat from SnB. I used Rowan Cashsoft DK (a cashmere/merino/microfiber blend) in a dark red, and left off the ears and pom-poms.
This was my first time:
Making an I-cord
Picking up Stitches
Making the Seed Stitch
Adjusting a knitting pattern (I have a very small head!)
Finishing a Knitted Project!
Here are a couple of photos:
