A gal I work with has a little one who’s right around a year (maybe more, maybe less – I don’t really know) and I saw this pattern in my Knitting Pattern-a-Day Calendar for a Popover hat. It was just so cute that I offered to make it for her out of some yarn I had in my stash. This took me very little time, but it’s gotten on skein out of my stash, so I’m all for that.
Pattern: Popover Hat from Knitting Pattern-a-day calendar (pattern by Little Turtle Knits)
Yarn: Bernat Satin in Star Dust
Needles: US 8 bamboo DPN’s and US 8 Denise’s
Time: Started – 5/23/07, Completed – 5/26/07
Notes/Mods: The only mod I made was to the tie on the hat – I knit an i-cord instead of using ribbon. This was a pretty easy knit for me. I don’t care too much for the way the increases are done since this is knit from the top down. It makes it kind of…. funky. If I were to knit this again, I may do it from the bottom up.
Here’s the hat flat:
Here’s the top of the hat:
I took some photos on my bear since I don’t have a baby/small child to try this on:
And since I’m showing FO’s, here are two squares I’m sending off to Rebuilding Greensburg:
I’m moving right along with my Back-to-School U-Neck Vest. Not too much left to go, but I’ve lost a little interest since I have been working on my shop so much lately. (Including printing out business cards and still working on postcards.)
I got the yarn for my sock-pal socks. I’ll post about that later, though. Happy crafting and have a good Memorial Day!
