I don’t do much knitting during the summer. Knitting and summer just don’t seem to go together. But as the weather starts to turn cool, there’s nothing I like better than snuggling in my flannel pajamas and knitting something cozy.
I’ve knitted numerous scarves, hats, and sweaters. Not to mention a gnome and golf club covers.
But recently, I decided Dad needed a hat. He wears his hair “very short” and his head always looks cold. He’s also a Pokes fan so I figured the color scheme designed itself.
The pattern I chose was from Ravelry: Rib-A-Roni by Jane Tanner. I used a soft wool in a dark grey with orange striping. It’s an easy to remember ribbed pattern perfect for working on while you watch TV or visit.
And here is the final result.He hasn’t seen it yet, so Dad, if you’re reading this, “I made you a hat!” I thought it turned out pretty good. And of course, I tested it out. It’s very warm and cozy. I really like it.
Which brings me to my next project: Knit Night Hat by Judy Marples.And I’ll be making it out of this:I can’t wait!! I’ll let you know how it goes.
