Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Another warm hat....
This hat is literally just 57 stitches by 24 rows....very quick to knit. I used two different dk yarns together and the end result is soft, squishy and very warm. This will fit a small child and is destined for one of the charities I knit for. I'd love one of these in my size. I've just been outdoors and it is very cold...the woolly hats are coming out.
The pattern is here or on the Ravelry site here. It is knitted on straight needles. I don't usually like seams on hats but this pattern is so well-written that the seam almost disappears when it is sewn up. You can just about see it in the centre of my photo.
The only thing I am not keen on is the clunky crown decreases. But they are not so obvious when the hat is being worn. This hat used very little yarn and is a great way to use up oddments.
