Off my needles

Hat #10

Pattern is the Lindsay Hat – free on Ravelry

Needles size – 8

Yarn is Sprightly spectrum worsted from Bluprint – I bought some of this yarn during the Black Friday sales at a pretty big discount to make hats because I liked the colorways but I didn’t read the reviews. It’s not the easiest to work with because there’s barely any twist to it so it splits easily and there’s concern about how durable it is but I think it knit up beautifully in the hat and since I don’t expect these to last more than a season or two before being outgrown or lost I’m not worried about durability.

I love being able to look through projects at Ravelry when I’m trying to pick a pattern. It’s nice to see something knit up in different yarns before I choose a project but I was surprised when I came across this photo! I hadn’t remembered that I’d knit this hat several years ago.


  1. That’s a cute hat and the pattern looks like a fairly simple one. Our church craft group is always looking for easy-to-make hats to knit for the homeless and this one would be perfect. Thanks for the link!
