Sorry, still with the hats….

3 Comments

Just working on the last group of hats for The Big Knit.  I have a couple more of my own designs, including a “long-tailed hat” and a corkscrew curl one.

The long tail one is the basic hat up to round 10 – cast on 28, purl 2 rounds, knit eight rounds and then a series of decreases. Since I work them all Magic Loop, the decreases are worked first on the front needle then on the back needle, NOT around – the knit stitches at the beginning and end of the needle makes for a nice, graduated decrease, rather than stair-steps, so it is a bit of a pain but super-cute:

The long-tail flops over nicely.  In a bit of a green phase, I guess. I like the jingle bells instead of the pompom sometimes:

The other one is also the basic hat, just with the addition of some crochet corkscrews – again, easy to do, just a chain of about 20, then 4 sc in one loop of each if the chain stitches to the end.

and so cute as a topper!

And a couple of close-up ones:

Beaded edges, added snowflakes, and little wreaths.  The snowflake ones will certainly work for February, when they go on sale.  I will probably make a lot more of the ones with the little crochet hearts stitched on, and I have some red heart buttons as well.

I should finish up in the next few days and send them off in the mail.  I’ve enjoyed the process.
