my finished knitting

knitted beanieI finished knitting the hat I was talking about yesterday.   It didn’t take long compared to other hats I have knitted on circular needles and/or double pointed needles.  I used a pattern from Red Heart only I wanted to have stripes.

My gauge was right on with their pattern.  So, if you like their pattern but want stripes like the one shown here. This is the process I used.

  • Rows 1-30 use color A
  • Rows 31-33 use color B (three rows)
  • Rows 34-39 use color C (six rows)
  • Rows 40-42 use color B (three rows)
  • Rows 46-49  color A (four rows)

After that you will continue with color A to shape the crown according tot he pattern.

I also came across this tutorial video about this same hat!  She adds a two more stitches at the front and back and knits all of them.  I think that would be great for sewing up the seam and plan on using it as I’m doing another one of these hats for my mom.
