Basketweave Hat

YugiDean's picture

This was the first project where I have knitted in the round. I bought an Addi Turbo Circular needle (love it) to knit this. Although intimidated by the thought of using DPNs after decreasing for a while, I jumped right in and found it to be nowhere near as daunting a task as I'd expected. I used bamboo DPNs because I have a horrible fear of my stitches sliding off my needles. LOL

I was, overall, OKAY with the hat, but not greatly pleased. I think the pattern was written incorrectly but didn't notice it until I had finished a third of it, turned it inside-out, and gave the thing a gander. Nevertheless, I don't think it looks half-bad, really. Hopefully its recipient won't be too horrified. LOL Attached an image of the hat on my head.

It's a nice hat and a good try. Now you have found DPNs and circs. not frightening you will not want to go back to flat knitting.
