When I first wanted to learn knitting, it was so I could knit hats. I tried this and that, and finally I've gotten around to knitting a hat. A guy hat. Woot. Woot.
First time knitting a hat. First time using double pointed needles. I tried to make a go without them, but it was inevitable, I was going to have to use them or have a hat with no top.
When I got to 30 stitches remaining, I transferred them to onto a piece of yarn and then threaded them onto the double pointed needles. What I should have done was this:
Then, I used this video to know what to do once the stitches were on the needles:
Next time, I think I'll make the hat about 1/2 inch longer before decreasing. Oh, and this yarn I used from my stash is so yummy!
Ok, now for what you really want to see....the hat!
p.s. Something beautiful is blocking.... ;-)Happy Crafting,
