Grand total: 318/538 stitches used. That’s 60% … oh well, at least I am more than half way. The book, as you can see is not in great shape, but this is ok as I only have to take the relevant bits with me, instead of the whole book.
…and p.s. after looking at the two piles, I may start calling myself a hat designer soon.
Well done Gilly…they are all awesome.
I knew there was a lot of hats, but I didn’t realize there were that many! A hat designer you are definitely.
…going to call yourself hat designer….give your lovely, well covered head a shake woman…YOU ARE!!!! I doff my hat to you in admiration and complete awe!!! Well done and happy anniversary!
Yeah, I was a bit surprised by how many there are. Many I had forgotten.
What an amazing commitment! And such incredible progress! (You are SO CLOSE to having 4 (or 5) chapters done!) I can’t wait to see those lace and cables start to flow!!
Actually, the stitches left in those chapters are mostly reversible, so I am actually saving them for family who ask for reversible hats
You are definitely a hat designer. Barbara Walker only supplied the stitches…you did ALL the rest. I hope you follow your dream and publish a book or two!
