Hi Karina

I'm sorry about that link - I didn't realise that they seem to have added quite alot to it since I originally posted it on the Forum. I think it was early last year when I found it.

It seems to go on forever and I think you'd need to sit reading it for a couple of days to get all the meaning of travelling and stationary stripes .

I hope your little one's ear infection clears up soon - they can be really painful those things and this freezing wind is the last thing to be in.

Wowsers, Rita! - What do you put on your Cornflakes????

The hat is absolutely lovely and the lace diamond effect is gorgeous.

I just don't know how you and Julie turn them out so fast!!!!

Thanks very much again Karina and Rita for your kind help.

Ellie

Thank you Karina ! The yarn i used was just some acrylic DK that i had left from another project .
The pattern is from a leaflet by Sirdar . Leaflet number 1711.
There are 4 different hats including this one .

Here are the hats I knitted earlier - as you can see, no time and effort has been spared to produce these spectacular and dazzling effects - I mean, have you ever seen anything so ornate and elaborate?

The little hat on the right isn't for this appeal - it's a hat I make for premature babies in UK hospitals - and even the little eyelet holes aren't really for effect - they just make it easier for the medical staff to thread tubes through.

Many Thanks again folks for your kind efforts and I'll post a pic tomorrow of the hat I'm knitting this evening.

I got busy the last couple of evenings and made the hat below. Must say that making these hats is certainly speeding up my knitting.

I used up the last my Wendy Aran Toddler yarn and the hat, although it looks thick, is very lightweight. Second picture is of the inside of hat - I think it makes a nice and cosy rib.

Another good thing that the rib is extremely stretchy - even though the inner opening to the hat is only 4", it easily stretches to at least five and a half inches - which is great, because it'll fit a newborn but stretch so that the baby doesn't outgrow it too fast.

I think next time I knit it, I'll use DK instead of Aran and see what it's like.

MANY THANKS AGAIN FOLKS FOR ALL YOUR KIND HELP.

BEST WISHES

Ellie
