Solstice Hat

January 8, 2008

Remember the Ho Ho Santa Hat that never was, well I frogged it and took that gorgeous yarn and reincarnated it into the Solstice Hat

Momma Mia

 I used size 8 circulars with a heavy worsted weight yarn, CO 90 stitchesand did a 2″ roll brim instead of the k1, p1 brim.  When it came time to decrease I started with k13, k2tog and went from there following the instructions.  I think when I got to the k2, k2tog I simply ran the yarn through the remaining stitches and that was that.

Love this hat.  I can’t get rid of it.  I was gonna, but once I put it on my head it felt so good.  It’s mine.  I will try and knit something besides a hat for the next FO but I can’t make any promises.

I have a busy day tomorrow at work and Thursday I get my annual mammogram (ack!).  I will try to blog again before the weekend.  Have a wonderful day!!

Peace~  Dawn
