I started this one last night, and it’s already done! Once I got past the beginning, because I had to try both brim versions to see which one I liked, it was a super fast knit!
Unblocked, side view:
Isn’t that a pretty colour? I used Knitpicks Shine worsted in crocus. Love that yarn so much!
My notes from Ravelry (hey, it’s silly to type it out twice!):
A very fast, easy knit!
I made the smallest size, because I was not sure one skein of Shine Worsted would be enough for the larger sizes. Seems like I was right, I only have a tiny ball left.
I knit one row before starting the pattern, since doing lifted increases on the very first row just doesn’t look good.
I also omitted row 4 of the pattern repeat, for a slightly shorter brim and to save yarn.
As for later tonight, there’s another hat I want to start – for myself, this time. It’s a special treat, I even got a skein of pretty sock yarn specifically for that. I’ve never ever bought yarn that cost $20 before – still haven’t, in fact, since Jeff bought this one for me :)
Oh, and I’m going to make soup. I have tomato sauce, V8, lentils, soy beans, peas (not convinced about the peas, they might get to stay in the pantry a while longer), onion, garlic, various veggies, and ancho chili plus a good curry powder. It’s an experiment, I want a spicy, hearty soup. don’t want to look at recipes first, because it’s more fun when I don’t :)
