More Knitting projects...

Part of my Christmas knitting that I can now post since the gift has been given is this Wisconsin Hat that I made for my dad. I had made one last year that my husband wears and my dad liked it. For this hat and size you increase until you get 101 stitches and knit 24 inches in length before decreasing. Then you double the hat and fold up the rim. Very warm!

The color was a challenge, I mean how long can camo hold a girls interest anyway? But it will be supper warm for him especially now with all the snow we have been getting!


  1. Turned out nice anyway in spite of the color!

  2. Cool hat, looks cosy :o)
    In answer to your question, I can do hand-sewn patchwork but haven't done it for years! My older cousin taught me how. Also, my Granny taught me how to knit and crochet but again, haven't done either for years, I was thinking of knitting something for myself....but can't seem to find the time....too much blogging!

  3. Very neat looking hat and I bet it's warm as well! Great job!

  4. I don't understand how you made it, would you elaborate for those of us who are challenged at times?!

  5. the fact that you're a knitter too gives us even more in common...super hat.
