I’m on a mission to finish as many UFO’s as possible and stash bust.
Hats are a great way to quickly knit up some misc balls of yarn. Put them away now for gifts when the weather turns cool. They are great for “to go” knitting, small enough to fit into your purse or bag, and fun.
I had some bulky yarns, and my crochet needle out from my Laguna Sun Hat, so I created this hat! I think it turned out super cute and it was fast. I used the Sun Hat pattern with bulky yarn, I would like to try it with cotton also.
Someone suggested jute or hemp to make a Laguna Sun hat, in my yarn bin I found some long forgotten hemp that was originally meant for a basket, (it has been a LONG time since I made baskets). It turned into a super cute hat!
I added another bulky yarn to the left over yarn from this hat and created this slouchy hat on big needles knitted flat.
Here is the beginning, and I just knitted along in a k1, p1 pattern until I was almost out of yarn and then did several rows of decreasing until ran out of yarn, It didn’t turn out quite like I wanted, but it is cushy and warm. On size 17 needles it was soon time to seam up the side and put it on.
My next UFO is a hoodie knitted in the round, after a day of puzzling over the notes I made, and knitting, I ended up frogging it! I don’t have the info on the yarn anymore so I’m not sure how much yardage I have. So I decided to cast on for a sweater I have been looking at in Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard, the Lion Neck Cardigan (rav link), it is a top down pattern, so I’m hoping to be able to “make it work”! I’m knitting the sleeves and the ruffle last, in case I have to modify it.
