Hat #2 is done. I’m not all that happy with this one … I think it’s probably the yarn and I might try it again in a different yarn. The pattern was easy to read and knit but I think my “worsted” weight yarn was too lightweight so if I try it again I’ll try it in a heavier yarn. I also didn’t like the feel of this yarn. It wasn’t as soft as many of the other yarns I use. The diameter of this one was not “adult size” (most likely due to the lighter weight of my worsted yarn) so I only knit to about 5 inches before starting the crown decreases and it will fit a child.
I’ve linked to the actual hat pattern below but check out the main pattern page on the Knots of Love site for other free patterns. Several years ago I made the Occasional Purl hat for my sister-in-law.
