2nd Finished object: chunky hat

jonathanjed's picture

I knit this hat in just a few hours on Saturday! I used Wendy Pampas mega chunky yarn in black and it knit up very quickly. I love the pattern and the hat feels good to wear. The only hard part was the end of decreasing on double pointed needles, but I managed to finish with just a few sore fingers. Thanks for all of the encouragement here - I'm in my 3rd week of knitting and loving it!

The only tricky part was converting from cm to inches, and then I figured out if I flipped over my tape measure......and my handy circular needle kit shows the needle size and length in cms and inches.
