I started knitting this little hat in Feb, and finally finished it in Dec. It took a while, but it turned out so cute! I first posted about it here, and here.

Hat and pattern Hat and Magazine  The pattern is from the 2008 fall issue of Knitscene. It’s called “double cap” by Kat Coyle. DSC_1066 Yay!Its warm and comfy and I love it! When I started I didn’t get the right gauge but continued on anyway (terrible idea, ask any knitter how ignoring gauge usually turns out..) but, despite that, the hat fits great! I used Bernat Cashmere blends, about 2 and a half skeins, and size 8 needles. It was the first time I had ever used this yarn but it is wonderful! The hat is soft and cushy, but has a nice weight to it.

I love the color and the way it fits, and I got it done just in time for the 75+ degree weather in Dec around here….lol Now I should probably work on some Christmas presents…. 😀


About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
