Basic Knit Hat


I am really getting into knitting the baby hats and actually prefer knitting over crocheting. I like both, but knitting is my favorite. I tried the pattern for this basic knit hat. After making it successfully trying the pattern exactly, I decided to modify it a bit to use double pointed needles. I am pleased with the results. I like the dpns because I don't have to sew up a seam when I am done.

So far over 150 hats have been turned in towards our goal of 520. Not too shabby!!

  7. Hi Yolanda, I'm happy to have found you again! I just this week started on teaching Ashley, my daughter, to crotchet a chain. I've always wanted to know how to knit and once took a class but kept getting stuck and then didn't know what to do. I would love to just have you sit with me and teach me because I love the way knitting looks.
    I see you blog design was by Darcy. I just love her designs and I'm now in her queue! I may be a while though since I hopped on at the last minute before she closed it for a while.
