Blue Hat, Knitted

This past year i started taking knitting lessons at our local Michaels Crafts Store.

I had knitted in the past but really needed a tune-up on my skills.  The teacher, Mary was fabulous and with her help my confidence has grown. 

I would say I am still a beginner but did venture out to make this pretty blue hat from some yarn in my stash (that I am trying to use up).  I used a pattern from Joannes Web on You Tube
The written directions are in the "Show More" link under the video.  It is always so nice of crafters to share free patterns and "how to's".

It was a joy to make and I do plan to make more from this pattern.  It is very stretchy and fits very well.  I used a worsted weight yarn but lost the label.  I do buy Vanna White yarn often so it may be from her line of yarn.
 



I am thankful for crafters who share .......freely....

  1. Great job! I love knitted projects. I should head over to my local craft store and start taking lessons. I'm thinking since I crochet, it can't be too much different.
    Would love if you shared this at our Yarn Fanatic Link Party - http://eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/2015/02/yarn-fanatic-linky-party-25-buttons-and.html.

  2. First of all that looks fabulous on you. You did a great job! I love to knit but I loom knit. I can't seem to get it down with the other way. But hey at least it is still knitting right?!
    This caught my eye on Inspiration Spotlight Link up today!

  4. Looking good, Kay!!! I haven't knitted for years. Perhaps it's time to dig out the knitting needles again.
