A hat!



I've been browsing the blog to make sure, but this seems to be my first finished knitting/crafty project this year. Oy! No wonder I feel off...
Anyway. This simple hat actually took me a while to knit, but it turned out just as I wanted it to be, a simple k2 p2 ribbing, followed by garter stitch. I love it! If we had the right temperatures for it, I would be wearing it a lot.
Now I'm secretly hoping the beginning of May (when we're in Holland again) will be chilly enough to wear it (nah, not really! - I'll safe it for December).


What I did:

CO 80 st.
K2 P2 to end of round
repeat until desired height

switch to garter stitch (alternating K rounds and P rounds)
repeat until desired height

start decreases:
SSK to end of round (40 st left)
P
SSK to end of round (20 st left)
P
SSK to end of round (10 st left)
pull thread through remaining stitches, weave in ends
