I'm trying my best to stay the heck out of yarn stores, online as well as the brick 'n mortars!
Oy. I'd love to knit up my stash before I die! Which will be about 35 years from now...
Anyhoo, I used some leftover yarn to knit a darling Aviator Hat for my great-grandson! The pdf available at Ravelry, $4. The designer gives such great instructions, 5 pages worth, including great photos of every step along the way. I liked this hat (worsted version) so much that I purchased her bulky pdf as well. (the numbers change)
are my notes, and you can click over to the hat's page and get the pdf if you like.
The hat takes a day.
