Thompson's Cap
My Asst Principal asked me to make him a hat....wants to pay me but I don't know how much....anyway I JUST finished. I'm gonna wash it tonight and get the cat hair and stuff out so it can dry tomorrow and be ready for monday


Make with Knit Picks Swisk DK in Merlot Heather. The pic doesn't show the color great. Its much more brown with a hint of greeny bronze to me...

Great work!

As for "price"...I've heard that some knitter charge 1/2 cent per stitch for the "labor",
and add that to the cost of yarn.

It shouldn't be hard to "calculate" or "estimate" how many stitches you knit for this hat!

Looks great!! Glad he loves it. And yes, it's always better to be "owed." LOL
