Another Diversion

Last night I decided I wanted a hat, and this afternoon I finished this:


Meet the Rolled Edge Stocking Cap that uses one skein of Noro Kureyon. This is my fastest project ever! Part of why I knit it in less than a day is because I couldn’t wait to watch the colors change. But to be honest, when I bought this skein, I had no idea that there were so many colors in this colorway (#148). I thought it was just pink and purple. Here is another view of the hat (unrolled) so that you can see more of the colors:


And here is the top color:


A minor heads-up if you knit this hat — gauge is not specified in the pattern (not that I would have checked anyway). I am a tight knitter and I followed the directions exactly. I had very little leftover yarn. So if you are a very loose knitter, you might need to make some adjustments or use a tad bit more than one skein.

I liked this knit so much that I already picked out another colorway for hat #2! If my sister likes the second one, then it will be for her. If not, then it’s another one for me!!

    I I ❤ Kureyon hats! I knit one for my little cousin, one for me out of leftover scraps from 2 balls (so it's extra rainbow-y), and I've got another in the queue to knit out of silk garden. I used the colorway you showed for your second hat to knit my felted Sophie bag. It's a really awesome pallette. Have fun!

    wow, it was a VERY quick knit! and exactly 1 skein! it looks really great and i like the colors. i think your next skein is going to make a really cute hat for sister. but i agree with you – if she doesn’t like it, well, then all the better for you to keep!! =)

    Cute hat! That is what I love about hats, they don’t take too long to make, they are pretty instant gratification. Especially baby hats.

    Cute hat! I love the colors and that it took 1 skein and a day to knit. It’s pretty hard to beat that.
