FO(s): Optimum HatsOctober 19, 2006 at 11:43 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
I bought a skein of South West Trading Company “Optimum” from my local yarn store’s Sale Basket to knit a hat for my Dad for his Birthday. Hats are the only Knitted things that he will wear. So, I knit one and had (barely) enough for another. So, the other one is getting donated to Christmas Knits to Help “One at a Time Ministries”.
Yarn: Stated Above. This yarn is Amazing, it’s sooo soft! It kind of looks like Cotton, but Feels like Cashmere, even though it’s Wool. 1 Skein in “Silver”
Needles: US Size 10 Straight
Pattern: “One Flat Hat”
This pattern worked out well, It knits up in about 1.5-2 hours. And, it fits well (on my head, at least). I hope my dad Likes it. I have about 2 feet of yarn left from my skein, so I guess that worked out pretty well!
