Baby Hatz

I made baby hatz yesterday. The first one is the slip stitch pattern from's Crusoe sock. I CO 56 sts with sport weight yarn, garter stitch cuff and then switched to Crusoe's stitch pattern. The decreases were a bit challenging and the slip stitch pattern gets a bit wonky at top, but only if you're looking for it. That hat took me three or four hours.
Then I switched to crochet and made the following three hats in less time than the one knitted hat took. I used the Baby Cap 2 pattern. These three are all made from sport weight and each one differs in size because the yarns were really different in size. Funny how that is!

Today I want to work on the Art school socks, toe and heel. I am called though, to CO something new... Maybe I'll go through my yarn today and see what I have and what I can make. I really should finish up some projects, rather than start something new. Maybe....

Math and fiber arts....

I want to be able to knit like this when I grow up. This was knit without a pattern. I can do many things like that, but as I've only made a couple sweaters I don't think that's within my power...yet.

It's kinda fun....try it!

  1. I think you're selling yourself short by thinking you couldn't make that sweater. You have all the experience, all the knowledge: all you need now is the confidence!

  2. I agree with jo-of course you could knit that top! It's very nice btw and one you could knit easily. In fact I am fairly sure you can knit whatever you want to knit.

  3. I especially like Hatz #8. I bet you get knit that top. The trick is to remember to use stitch markers for each repeat.


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
