Finished Objects: Tayberry Hat

11 Aug

Ok, when in your knitting career do you finally start to really visualize a knitted item from reading the pattern? Because I should have noticed by the fact there are no decreases in this hat pattern, that it would not be rounded at the top. It is literally a square hat, how strange. Anyways the pattern/yarn deets can be found on my last WIP post This knit up quickly however I did find myself having to tink back many times for missing a stitch here or there.

The bind off at the top was a three-needle bind off, super easy, but I wish I would have tried to figure out a way to bind off the top in an x-shape instead of straight across. I might still take it apart and figure that out but I doubt it.

I need to work on it, or teach the kids how to do it, or put it back in auto focus. I have this one picture in focus but I think you can sense my displeasure with both the hat and my camera setup. Either way, I am a little happier because I realize how well the colors match my favorite coat. I hadn’t even thought of that when I purchased the yarn.

Now when I have complete control of my camera:

It’s a tiny bit big on my little man, but who cares! He’s cute!
