The last hat (from 2017 that is)

Thanks for coming over to my new blog! Some things still need tweaking, but that will take some time and I'm very busy with other things at the moment. So I hope you will excuse broken links and messy layouts. I will take care of it, eventually.

Even though it was a (very,very) slow knitting year, this last hat (I finished it on New Years Eve around nine, so it was a close call) makes nine hats in 2017. On a total of twelve knitting projects (the other three being dishcloths), that's still a lot of hats I guess.

I already mentioned I love this yarn (I made this hat with it too) and I'm also in love with the fancy stitch I used on the brim.

I found my grandmother's knitting book in a box of forgotten stuff when I helped my parents downsize. My mother happily parted with it when I asked I could have it.
It's full of fun stitch patterns like this. I'm looking forward to work through all of them.

  1. That stitch pattern is gorgeous! Looks way more intricate than I believe it is. Great job on getting it in under 2017.

  2. It's actually quite simple. I plan to write it out and put it on the blog, so stay tuned for that ;-)

  3. What a great hat. I love the colour too. It is great to leaf through old knitting books. Thanks for joining in my new monthly link party.
