Here are two things I've made over the past month for xmas presents.

The first is a scarf for my Mum.
Its knitted in Farrow Rib (K2 P1) it's a simple stitch but made it look really pretty.

My bf is modelling all the bits  Tongue excuse his grump face...Idk why he looked so grumpy!lol



Here is a close up


This second one is actually the FIRST hat I've made.
It was for my Secret Santa (Kris Kindle) in our Stitch N Bitch group.
I was pretty proud of it.



CO 66sts on 5mm straight needles
I knitted the red and pink yarn together in stockinette stitch for the rolled up brim for about 2 inches.
Then switched to the pink yarn and went to seed stitch for 8 inches and then decreased by *K2,K2tog starting from * all the way until I ended up with 5 stitches left.

Then I cut the yarn leaving a very long tail which I threaded through the 5 stitches and pulled tight.
I used the tail to seam the hat up in blanket stitch.
Seam it turned inside out btw or you will be left with a tip at the hat (the original design called for this but I didn't like it!)

So it was finished but I thought it looked a bit boring so I added a pom pom


Tah dah!!  Cheesy

I knitted this hat in a day so it's really easy to make.
I've been asked to make more now...lol

Your bf is a good sport to model for you!  Cheesy

Thanks for the mini tute!  I think I can make this hat (I have no luck with circular needles!!)..

I can see how this hat can be made for some guy friends of mine--but probably not in pink.. Wink

Your mom and swap partner will be happy to receive your gifts! Nice job and happy holidays!

No worries.

The tutorial maybe should've been written out with more time.But that's basically all there is to it.
It's the easiest thing I've made  Smiley

And yeah my bf is a good sport Cheesy

Your instructions were perfect!  I wrote it down on an envelope and started it already in brown!  I have never made a hat without a loom so this will be a good test!

My first try at a hat like this was so horrid that I turned it into a small drawstring bag!
