Just a Hat

September 24, 2014

Finally something knitted to share! This is the Barley hat, a free pattern on Ravelry. I ended up using handspun and fulling it slightly. The yarn definitely softened with use and another bath, although the dye bled a bit into the water. I made the largest size which was a mistake for a couple of reason. The first being the garter stitch section is way too large for me. That was my own doing I made the mistake of not reading the patterns needle size suggestions well enough and decided to over compensate by making the large size. (With the idea I would full it later. ) Oh well, what can you do? The hat is still warm and I am sure it will be a fine addition to the winter collection.
