So it is slowly making it's way into autumn here in Australia and I picked up some great yarn in an Op shop for $1 per 100g ball! And I had even seen this yarn in the shop I was in previously and it was about $3/ball... I took it as a sign that I had to have it. The yarn called for 10mm needles and I wanted to break away from doing scarves and baby blankets so I did a search on the net and found this pattern:
http://need2knit.blogspot.com/2007/04/bulky-rib-beanies.html

The pattern called for 20 rows before any shaping, but I changed it to 18 - not sure if I made the right decision, but I'm still happy with how it turned out.

So here are some pictures of my first beanie. Comments and criticisms welcome!






Enjoy!

for a first, it looks pretty kick! from the looks of the way it fits your head, 18 rows looks to have been a good choice- two extra rows doesn't sound like a lot, but it'd bring it down to about your eyebrows, which i don't really like (i wear glasses).
kudos! keep up the knit!
