I think this one might be more Mo’s size than Rae’s … hard to say without trying it on them. It’s a free pattern from Ravelry but I cast on fewer stitches and knit it to a shorter length.
Are you a perfectionist? In knitting I don’t think I could be even if I wanted to. I know enough to get by but I dropped a stitch when I was binding off and while I managed to pick it back up, you can see, if you look closely, where I didn’t do it quite right but it’s good enough for a child’s hat that will be worn for a season ….
I’m still just puttering but I’m working my way through my lists slowly. I’ll pack for my trip tomorrow but I’ve been gathering all the stuff I need to take to Mom’s. It will take an extra suitcase because I haven’t been there in a few months. I felt well enough to crawl around and trim her quilt so it’s ready for me to take back to her. I have a little more floor space here than she does so I try to trim her quilts before sending them back … and I’m just nice like that anyway!
I’m taking a break now and working on another knitted hat. I love the colors of the Caron Cupcakes but because it’s acrylic it seems to work up at a larger gauge even though it’s the same weight. I’m a little afraid the hats for Rae might be too big so I’ll make a couple extra ones.
