I spend a lot of time on Ravelry and most of it is with the Rubberneckers. They’re a hilarious bunch of hoars. I knit three hats for Sharky’s charity knitting thingy on RnR and I apologise for being two seasons late.
I don’t have a small child to pose with the knits so my lamp will have to do. She has ambitions of catwalk modelling so I’m sure she’s secretly pleased at this opportunity.
Rachel Lacy Rib Hat
Pattern: Rachel Lacy Rib Hat
Size: Smaller one (CO 80)
Yarn: Slightly less than 1 x Spotlight Basics Delight
This is my first time doing a picot edging and although it’s pretty, it’s a bloody pain in the arse.
I believe there’s an error in the crown decreases in the pattern. This is what I did:
Row 3: *skp, k1,p, k2tog, yo, p repeat from * to end
There is also no stitch count for the crown decreases for the smaller size so I’ve provided them here:
Row 1: … (63 st)
Row 3: … (54 st)
Row 5: … (36 st)
Row 7: … (18 st)
Row 9: … (9 st)
Child’s Self-striping Hat
Pattern: Child’s Self-striping Hat
Size: CO 104
Yarn: Not very sure but I think it’s less than half x Lion Brand Magic Stripes
Easy and straightforward pattern. Plus, designer included different cast-on numbers for different gauges.
Yarn: 1 x Spotlight Basics Delight
This is my favourite hat pattern out of the three. The owls are adorable! I need to make one for myself!
