Off my needles

Hat #21 is done – cast on this evening and finished shortly after midnight it was a quick one – in fact Mom and I had a long phone conversation while I was knitting the bulk of it. This yarn is a wool/acrylic mix and it’s machine washable but there’s next to no twist to it and I’m not sure how well it will hold up. Luckily, it’s a hat and I’m happy if they make it through a season without getting lost or ratty looking although, Rae and Mo have many hats from previous seasons that have held up well including one from this yarn (different colorway) that I made a couple years ago.

  • Pattern – Snow Day found free on Ravelry
  • Needle size – 8
  • Yarn – Sprightly Yarns Spectrum Worsted
  • Cast on 72 stitches and knitted the large size from the pattern. Started decreases when hat measured about 6.25 inches.


  1. Your hat is looks beautiful. I love knitting them because they can really be a blank slate in terms of yarn and any sort of design. Thank you for posting about this pattern, I have been making a ton of hats this fall and I am always on the lookout for more.
