I cast on too few stitches and it became apparent that this could not be an adult hat without severely distorting the stitches. I decided to end it early and make it a childs hat. I swung by my niece Cate’s house and delivered it on my way out of town the other day.
I used 102 stitches and Striped Quilting Pattern, pg 72. I used four points of decrease and decreased two stitches every other row three times in each 8 row pattern repeat.
our grand niece looks lovely in her hat! The colours are great together.
wow…that was fast. Thanks Nancy. See you at the guild!
that hat looks really sweet on your beautiful little grand niece
Love it! The model is pretty cute.
Hey Gillian! It looks like you had a family-filled Christmas – the best kind! Did I tell you I have a great-nephew? He is about 20 months old and only seems to say “oh, no” and “nana”! I am working at the moment at Shirley’s Bay (way out the west end of Carling Avenue) but only started 2 weeks before Christmas. Hope all is well and I am still amazed at your hat-making abilities!
Thanks Heather. Yes, as you can guess by the hat output, I am not working at present, but I have an interview on Friday.
