I finished up my first hat last night. I found a pattern for an easy hat here and then adjusted it for my yarn. I used Red Heart Soft Yarn from Joanns and cast on 104 stitches on size 6 16" circular needles. From there I followed the pattern until the end. I ran into a few problems at the end when I realized how useful double pointed needles would have been. The ends of my adjustable circular needles just weren't cutting it, but I made it work and was able to finish the hat without
having to purchase a new tool.
I wanted Shinji to model the hat for me, but he was clearly not a fan!
Don't worry...he forgave me two minutes later after I gave him a nice head scratch and belly rub!
