This was my first knitted project. I never did practice swatches/squares. I just dived into making fun hats. And I loved it! This pattern was taken from a book called Hip Knit Hats, I used different colors and needle gauges though than what it called for. The book has a lot of different hats for your specific head shape. And no baby hats. I get soo tired of getting knitting books that seem cool, but then have a huge chunk set aside for kids. 

Life, liberty and the pursuit of craftiness.

This is cute too! I saw your other hat too. I know what you mean about knitting books seeming cool...and then turning out to not be as cool as you thought. It's really annoying and far too common Wink

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I love the Hip Knit Hats book.  For Christmas last year, I made each of my family and friends that I get gifts for a different hat from the book.  I have noticed that there are some errors in the book and did find this list of corrections:


On whole, I found most of the patterns (even the ones marked for more experienced knitters) to be easy and quick knits and I am far from an expert knitter.
