Four Striped Hats

hat project page

My needles have been extremely productive, I'm loving it!  All of the hats are the same pattern called strib hat.  The pattern is easy to knit and lends to all color combinations.  I have been knitting from my odds and ends bag of worsted weight wools.

The hats are for gifts and I'm excited to see if the recipients like their hats.

 Sitting with odds and ends of wools, planning out the striping, getting creative when the wool length was skimpy, made this knitter happy.  Best of all my scrap bag has been thinned out considerably.  I still have pinks and purples left over and maybe I'll make some more hats, just not now.

I have other gift knitting yet to do.

  2. I love these hats. I have the pattern downloaded for knitting - a little later. I have a bag of odds and ends of Knit Picks Swish Worsted that should be just the ticket. I like all the color combinations but the bottom two stand out for me. I am knitting a shawl for my sis's November birthday (can't blog about it because she reads the blog) and Norah's Christmas stocking. I have a sock and a half to finish on the next bit of traveling as well as a pair of fingerless mitts destined for a gift. Tis the season for gift knitting.

  3. Not a lot of knitting so far this week. I did kitchener a friend's shawl --------150+ stitches on each needle. Boy, is my finger sore.

    The hats look great. The fact that they use scraps is a double win.

  4. That's a great hat! I need to organize my worsted yarns but you have a winner there. I don't know what I'm knitting next. I finally finished Ryan's mitts, now maybe it's time to finish my Match & Move.

  5. I want to start knitting with worsted just to end up with odds and ends that would make up into fun hats!

  6. They will make great gifts. Love the stripey effects. I am working on a scarf. Aiming for finishing as a christmas gift but if not it will have to be for a birthday present for next Feb instead.

  13. Hmmm...I think it is the person who has been working those needles who has been quite productive, my friend. :) The hats are all lovely. I was excited to pick up some yarn today as something to try out to see how I like the way it works up in a shawl. I'll let you know if it works out.
