so i've been looking for a good earflap hat for a while. and luckily i came across this pattern, http://throughtheloops.typepad.com/through_the_loops/2007/12/i-knit-through.html
It was really easy, although starting was a bit tricky, 4 stitches on size 9 needles! hard to keep all the needles straight. it took me maybe 2 and a half days, with school and work and everything. i learned how to crochet for this, before i always thought i was crap at crochet, but i like it a lot!
Details: Yarn- Malabrigo Worsted in a greenish-purple colorway and a grayish coloway.
Neeldes- size 9 dpns and 16 in. circs
Mods- i was off on my gauge, i didn't have chunky yarn, so i just knit the large size and it worked out perfectly.
pics: (sorry for the blurry pics)
Crochet edge detail
the colors in the pics are pretty accurate. i want to make a bunch of these! i think the crochet edge really finishes it off, and the garter border is nice and warm. i think next time i will try it will chunky yarn though, to add a little more bulk. thanks for looking!
