I have cast on a winter hat for my toddler son. Which is exactly what one should be doing when I have a big cardigan for myself that I am half way through and desperate to wear RIGHT NOW.
But my baby doesn’t have a hat and I just bought him a bright orange winter coat, which would just look so adorable with a bright orange hand dyed hand knitted hat……….
Wouldn’t he look cute with a little orange hat?
The pattern is Swirl Hat by Mandie Harrington. The yarn in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4ply that I hand dyed using Landscape dyes. I did a twisted German cast on which is a lovely cast on that I have recently learned, and of course I had to do it twice because I didn’t make the long tail long enough the first time.
Here is where my Something Silver is at.
I am so looking forward to wearing it, at it’s woollen weather right now, but I have so far to go – another 6″ of body pattern and then a very wide garter band and two pockets, and the sleeves. I’ll keep plugging away. Knitting an adult size garment really takes perseverance!
