Hi everybody

I knitted this up in a day (Im so proud  Cheesy ) its a baby hat knitted on 5mm needles. The yarn gradually changes colour and its really soft. I added a tassle.



La question:
At the top of the hat there are some little holes. I casted off like the stitch and bitch book told me to (I forgot the name of the casting off and i dont have my book with me right now) but basically you knit 2 stitches together. Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?


This is my 3rd knitting project I've done and my first hat.

Thanks for reading my post

I can't quite see from the pictures what the problem is, but if you use the usual bind-off where you pass the previous stitch over the one you just knitted, you will end up with a hole at the top of your hat. When I have made hats like that, I've bound off by threading the tail of yarn through all of the remaining stitches, then pulling it tight. That cinches up the top of the hat quite nicely.

Holes aside, that is a cute baby hat. I love the huge tassel.
