I'm trying to be more adventurous on my life these days. I love knitting and even though Ravelry has an unbelievable amount of patterns, I can't always find exactly what I want. So I improvise. I decided today, I should list a couple of such items as patterns. Who knows, maybe one of my patterns is exactly what someone else is looking for.
I'm starting with my Wee Hats. If the amount of comments and messages I received is any indication this will be a success. Hope you enjoy!
I used an assortment of left over sock yarns. not much is needed. Less than 5 yards for each hat.
I used size US #0-#1 needles.
Cast on 24 stitches, join in the round for knitting. Knit 4 rounds in 1x1 (K1, P1) rib. Then knit 14 rounds in plain knit, stockinette. Decrease round; *k3, k2tog* around. ( I ended up with 1 extra stitch, I knit it. In the 3rd round this corrects itself.) Knit 1 round. Decrease round; *k2, k2tog* k1. Knit one round. Decrease round; *k1, k2tog.* DO NOT knit a round. Decrease; k2tog around. Draw yarn through the last 5 stitches to close and weave in ends.
I love these little hats, I hung them on my small Christmas tree along with wee socks and sweaters.
