Hat: take 2

I made the hat again, using 4mm needles and casting on 108 stitches instead of 90, and this version is a much more realistic size. I managed the double pointed needles OK once I’d practiced a bit, and it was much easier to do the decreasing rounds, and it looks a bit better too, I think. It is a very green hat, but my mum has bravely volunteered to wear it, as she has a green scarf it will go with. Here is the hat in repose:

It’s quite difficult to take a photo of the back of one’s own head, and I apologise for the weirdness of this photo:

The colours are a bit odd in these pictures – I used my phone camera which always produces slightly strange colours, for some reason. The hat is much greener than it appears, and my hair is not that colour at all!

  1. Fabulous to find another knitting librarian in the UK. There seem to be loads of us. 🙂 Thanks for making the effort to comment in German on my blog.
