Cute Hat

I finished the first sock last Friday and it fits! I decided to take a break from tiny needles and itty bitty stitches and indulge in a little instant gratification.

This cute hat was designed by Debbie, a Preemie Project volunteer. It's knit flat and then seamed together on the side. A great pattern for beginners. I love the shape! The Preemie Project will be donating holiday themed hat sets next month, so I will be working on these in between other things. I also just learned there will be a donation of bereavement items on December 1st. Time to start knitting for the babies again. I won't neglect the sock though. I cast on the second one yesterday and have about 3 inches knitted so far.

  6. I'm glad you liked the pattern, Tracy. Yours looks great. The pattern called for a bit more length before the decreases than the sample I made (so it would be a bit longer to flop over better). Looks like it worked well. Thanks again for testing the pattern out and for your suggestions.
