1  Norwegian Style Baby Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by shadkitty on: May 15, 2007 09:07:27 PM
After seeing this hat, linked to on Hello Yarn's blog, I couldn't wait for it! I had to knit it right now! So...I did. Except I did it with some of my own handspun and at a much larger gauge.

For details, check my blog post.

I really like it but now its 70 degrees over here. So i might not get to wear it until next year.  Undecided   I'll try to get a pic tonight.


That exact thing happened to me! I finished my hat last night. It was like 50 yesterday, so I wake up, throw on my hat, and now it's 70 outside. I wore the hat anyway. lol



I used Cascade 220 (some leftovers from Wicked, plus some stash that I had for a fulled belt) in colors #2448 and #9452. Based loosely on the Wicked pocket pattern and the big blue beret pattern, here's what I did:

CO 80sts on size 5 needles. K1 P1 ribbing for 1.5".
k4, m1 around. (100sts)
Switch to size 8 needles.
Row 1: *k4, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 2: *k4, p2, crossover, p2, k4, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 3: *k4, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 4: *k4, p2, k2, p2, k4, p2, crossover, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 5: *k4, m1, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end (110sts)

Row 6: *k5, p2, crossover, p2, k5, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 7: *k5, p2, k2, p2* rep from* to * til end
Row 8: *k5, p2, k2, p2, k5, p2, crossover, p2* rep from * to * til end
Row 9: *k5, p2, k2, p2* rep from * to * til end
Repeat rows 6-9 until hat measures 8.5 inches from CO edge. (approx 10 total reps)

Start decreasing as follows:
Row 1: Row 6: *k5, p2tog, crossover, p2tog, k5, p2tog, k2, p2tog* rep from * to * til end
Row 2: *k2tog, k1, k2tog, p2, k2tog, p2* rep from* to * til end
Now k2tog around until you have 6 or 7 sts.

I finished mine this past weekend! Now I'm just looking for a reason to wear it! Being a stay-at-home mom doesn't really give me a chance to really show it off. Hopefully I'll get it out there this weekend. At the very least I'll wear it to the LYS.

Don't mind the picture, I threw all of that on to take a quick picture. I used Cascade 220 "The Heathers" in color #2448 (the picture doesn't do it justice, this is much closer), size 7 Denise interchangeables and knitted the size small (32"-25"). I did a few extra decreases for the shaping because I picked up a couple of sts after removing the sleeves. Also, 54 is NOT divisible by 4, much to my chagrin. I picked up about 6 sts when I started the sleeves, decreased back to 54 only to find this out. The second time around I just stuck with the 60, lol, in retrospect 56 would have been better because it's divisble by 8.

Beautiful! This pattern is very becoming! I am tempted to add it to my list.

Do it! You know you want to. lol Everybody's doing it, and you just won't be happy until you are too. Trust me, that's exactly what happened to me.

Jesdmill - Yours looks great! I wish I had thought of doing that with my sweater, but that's okay since I plan on wearing it over another shirt anyway. I've got to give myself a little more ease than I'm used to.

Yeah I got some of the lion brand suede and its like 3 times the thickness and I couldn't figure out the gauge and how to alter the pattern and it turned out to be a big mess Tongue

I could probably make ones to fit me with the same pattern Grin



Yeah...lion brand suede is way too thick. I used a soy blend I got from my Secret Pal, it's from Knit One Crochet too. That worked GORGEOUSLY! I didn't put the earflaps and all on the hat, the Caron Bliss that I used to substitute for the Plush...way too irritating.

I really like those babydollcybergoth!! The honey dew & pear especially.

Okay...one of these has a name, but the others don't.


This one I call Italian ice (for hopefully obvious reasons)


Did anyone else have a problem with the different dyes in the purple being soaked up at different rates? It's been awhile since I've been through this entire thread. lol Mine came out kinda mottled because the reds and blues in the dye soaked in differently. You can only kinda see it in the picture. I used Wilton's by the way.

I was wondering the same thing, I've finished my first sleeve and I'm about to put them on the stitch holders. I got to thinking that when I finish my 2nd sleeve I'll have 2 tails of yarn to use. So what do I so with the extra one?

It may be a silly question, but this is my first nonflat project so its my first time with dpn and circulars. I'm not extactly clear on the processs of starting the cowl from two sleeves. I read the pattern and it kinda made sense  but seemed like there were gaps..... so if anyone can explain that a little too it would be much appreciated.

Yeah. I just left tails. I guess you just weave in the loose tail from the other sleeve. That's what I plan on doing anyway. Still need to buy my last skein of yarn, probably going to throw some cheaper yarn in the cowl (the part that'll be hidden when I fold it) because I'm not sure I'll have enough yarn. *sigh* Here's what I have so far:

You should make a chart of yourself, cos uh everyone has pornstar photos of themselves lying around. Would be cool though.

Ah ysolda, you've inspired me!!! (even though it's been months since anyone has posted to this thread)

I'm going to graph this picture of me (slightly altered so it's only in two colors lol)



Though I haven't a clue as to what to do with it. I was going to do the WHOLE picture...but really that would have wound up being too many stitches with what I have no idea to do. Who knows...maybe I will. Then I can just frame it and make some pretty interesting wall art. Cheesy



What do you think?  Huh
