I’ve been knitting for about 8 months now, and with each new project I’m learning new skills. Learning how to knit a hat sounded intimidating at first since it involves double-pointed needles, but with a little patience and practice I’ve mastered it!
I decided to go with this bulky waffle hat pattern on Ravelry. As usual, I got my yarn from Imagiknit in San Francisco 🙂 I chose an off-white yarn that required the same size needles mentioned in the pattern, US 10 (circular and double-pointed).
As the pattern calls for, I did a 2 x 2 rib stitch for about 2 inches, and then a waffle stitch until the piece from the cast on edge measured about 7 inches. Then I started shaping the crown (with double-pointed needles)!
And soon enough…
…the finished product!
I decided to fold up the brim of the hat, otherwise it’s too long to wear unless it slouches a little at the top. Still looks cute though 🙂
