I finished my first hat of the season! It’s been raining here non-stop for the past four days—perfect for getting a head start on fall knitting! The pattern and yarn are from a new company in Maine called Quince & Co. Miss Chelsea over at Frolic! tipped me off—I think her sister is making her the same hat!
Below the hat I made. I love that it covers my ears. How cute is the garter stitch on the bottom? For some reason mine isn’t as pointy on the top as the photo above suggests. I did screw up the decrease so maybe that’s why? I’m making another one with navy on the bottom and gray on the top. Maybe for Greg?
I learned a few new knitting techniques like long tail cast on and adding stitches in the middle of a pattern. Super big thanks to Jean over at A Yarn Over Marblehead for helping me. Have you gotten started on any fall knitting projects?
