2 knits in a row for myself.  That never happers!



The hat is Capitan Hat by Rosi Garmendia, in Bernat Softee Chunky colourway Denium, knit of 6mm needles.
The cowl is Destroyed Cowl by Martha Merzig, in Cascade 220 Heather colourway 4008 (a red), knit on 5mm needles.

Both were great instant gratification knits, or as instant as knitting with a 5 month old ruling your life can be =)  I'm very please with both.

They both look great! I love the colour choice for the hat, it's such a happy colour. Did you stiffen the brim with a plastic insert, or is it just the knitting that is keeping the shape?

Thanks!

No incert, its all knit but 2 layers.  You pick up the stitches from the edge of the hat, knit out and then back again.

The cowl looks great! Both the design and the colour. Thanks a lot for the heads up to that pattern.  I was just asking about how to do the dropped stitches to make it more loopy.
