Knit bits - The little blue hat

Published April 30, 2023

After some of the early bits and pieces, I wanted to knit something actually useful so opted for a hat. I wasn’t ready for circular or double pointed needles (still not, if I’m honest), so this fantastic pattern which knits a bobble hat on straight needles was a gem of a find.

I dived straight in without thinking about measurements or gauge or anything, so the end result was way too small to fit on any adult-sized head. I didn’t bother to put a bobble on it because I don’t currently have an intended user for it. BUT I was super happy with the results, the way it decreases, the nice stretch of the rib at the bottom, and the way it stitched together. Hooray!
