For me yarn started off as a hobby, something to make things like blankets, tea cozies, little crochet amigurumi but not wearable projects.
I thought a knitted sweater was outdated, old fashion and not flattering at all. But the more I got into knitting, the more I started to appreciate a handmade garment. I finally realized that a handmade item can be both a joy to make as well as a to wear. There is nothing better than to choose your own colours, the perfect pattern and the perfect material.
Lately when browsing the Ravelry pattern page (which I try to as little as I can, since I tend to forget time completely), I notice that I eyeball mostly sweaters, hats, scarves, etc.
So when my sister in law graduated I knew I had to make her something wearable.
You can probably guess what it is right? A little hat!
You knit this project inside out, so from this side it looks like a normal rib pattern. But from the inside in looks like this:
Little bumps made by a broken rib pattern (which is knitting one row and k1, p1 on the next assuming that you would also work inside out).
The yarn is some old yarn from a local chain store Wibra (probably only know by the Dutch) which is perfect for this little project. I enjoy making this project so much, I know there will follow many more hats!
The pattern for this hat is a free pattern called Graham by Jennifer Adams and so far I enjoy knitting this pattern. The hardest part will now start, neatly decrease the stitches and closing it up. I hope to present the end result on Friday :-).
Check out Tami's Amis for some more WIP's and I hope to see you all on Friday!
PS: Sorry for the bad picture quality, I took them with my phone.
