Off my needles

This was a quick little beanie! The pattern calls for bulky weight yarn which I don’t use … and size 10 needles. I decided to try Aran weight yarn on size 9 needles and see how it went thinking I’d get a child size hat …. And I did. I’m going to remake this one with the same yarn and make the larger size next.

  • Pattern – Snow Day found free on Ravelry
  • Needle size – 9
  • Yarn – Paintbox Simply Aran
  • Cast on 64 stitches and knit the small size from the pattern.

One thought on “Off my needles

  1. Thanks again for the link. I’ll knit this one with variegated wool. I knit all my hats with 2 strands of DK on 6.5 mm circular needles. I usually use one plain colour mixed with a co-ordinating variegated. I adjust any pattern to suit me. I sometimes use 2 strands of different colours and look forward to seeing how they turn out. I’m knitting a few for a homeless charity at the moment so I don’t think they’ll be too bothered about my yarn selection 🙂
