Another DiversionPosted: November 13, 2005
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!!
