My very first hat!
Hello everyone!

Ok im new so be nice! lol! (please?!)

Ive been knitting for a while I cant knit in a straight row really well! but didnt really learn much until recently and im still learning!

I just tried some circular knitting! My very first attempt was a hat! It only took 3 hours! lol!

It really needs work but its my first try!

What do you think!?

(rubbish pic from my phone!)

Well done! It's a great looking hat and in beautiful colors. it looks cozy and warm too. Did you use a mulicolor yarn or is that 2 strands held together?

Wow! There's not a thing wrong with that hat! It is cute cute cute! And it looks very warm, too!

I think you deserve kudos for trying some new things, sticking with it until you finished the project, and ending up with an adorable hat!

I will readily attest that my first attempts at circular knitting didn't come out anywhere near this good! In fact, I got very frustrated with it and only picked it up again (with a little more success) just recently.

What a cute hat! You did a great job!

BTW we are always nice to each other here.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

A very cute first hat and you even did a pom-pom. Good work. Warning: Hats can be additive because they are so fun to make.

Thanks guys! You made my day! lol!

Your all lovely!

I made a new hat and for the first time in my life managed to follow a pattern! Me following a pattern! My gran is going to be so proud! lol!

It was very basic but is my second attempt! I think I have to post it in a new thread to show you the pic!?

I do have a question tho! Where do I post that!?
Its just on my first attempt the ends rolled up, is there a way or a stitch I can do that will stop it rolling up and just be kind of like a stocking cap type hat!?
Does that even make sense? lol!


Oh PS the colour of my first hat, it was an old sirdar wool from last year or maybe even the year before! It is fab colours! Like a candy cane! lol!
