a quick one
in a few days off, i've accomplished quite a lot of knitting. i've knit half of a tilted duster, made a little more progress on some of the smaller projects i have going, and i knit a hat.
this one feels like cheating. combining big yarn, big needles and 2 hours of knitting , has given me a very warm hat. i love it and it was so ridiculously simple, i was actually able to write it down!
the yarn is twinkle soft chunky, a super bulky, soft wool. i used us15 (10mm) needles. the pattern is simply 1x1 rib, switched every 6 rows. i didn't include pom-pom making instructions in the pattern, because, even after several years as a knitter, i remain pom-challenged. luckily this yarn fluffs up nicely, and even my sad pom-pom looks kinda cute, i think.
ok, there you go. if you want it, you can download the pattern in pdf. format
you can find it on ravelry, and download it from that page HERE
