Knit Hat

Remember that square I knit a while ago? I finally made it into something other than a blanket for a tiny animal. I found a pattern for a hat that I liked and did my best to follow it.

I learned how to purl, and how to alternate between knitting and purling. I thought I learned what stockinette was, but upon further looking into it, I actually did it wrong, which is probably why I couldn’t get the top of the hat to look the way I wanted it. I re-knit the bottom of the hat a few times, the top of the hat a number of times, and the entire hat at least once. It was a process.

It’s not exactly how I wanted it to turn out, but after re-stitching different parts a bunch of times, I decided it was best to just claim the victory than to keep trying for perfection. Overall, I think I did a good job, and it was a fun learning experience. And now I have hat for whenever it gets cold again in a few seasons.
