Children's Hat


Here is a picture of the children's hat that I had been working on. I finished it last night, but it was too late (read dark) to take a picture of it; I waited until this afternoon.

The colours are showing brighter on here because I used the flash. Any of the pictures I tried to take without the flash were too dark.

I used Paton's Classic Wool, black for the ribbing, and...ummm...I forget the colourway of the rest of it. I'll have to look into it as I have another skein of it. The needles were 4.5mm circular for the whole thing. I think next time I do this hat (or really any other hat), I will probably follow the directions and use the bigger size it called for to do the top part of it.

I wanted to get a picture of the hat on my friend's daughter to see how it would fit on a child's head, but she was sick tonight so I didn't get the chance. I also thought it might be nice to have a live model to show my work for once (with her mother's permission mind you)...no such luck - no live model that is, not that I didn't get permission...though technically I didn't get her permission since I didn't see her daughter tonight to take the picture, so I couldn't ask. Confused? Me too.

This was a patten I used from the holiday issue of the holiday Knit Simple that I mentioned in the previous post. The pattern was very easy to follow and knit up in no time really - well, so long as I kept knitting and not putting it down too often. I think I'll definately be using these patterns again in the future!

Very nice hat! I've seen elsewhere people getting their cats to model stuff...

Liz...I've thought of that but my cat would probably just rather lay on top of the items...or chew them if they are wool. She, for some reason, loves wool and will seek out any skeins of wool I have over anything else and then proceed to play with and try to chew.
