I'm gathering quite a pile of knitted but not finished or blogged items. All small, all simple. All destined for gifts!
Here's the first two items.
The pattern is the Ribbed Watachman's Hat, knitted for my father and C's frather. I took two photos! I used some stashed Cascade 220 in black. The pattern is pretty simple, just 2x2 ribbing until you decreaseat the top.
First hat, for my dad. It's as per the pattern, but I went down to 3.75mm needles, making for a tighter hat. (Truth is that I couldn't find larger needles in longer lengths for magic loop!).
Apologies fo rhte poor quality of the photos. Mr C was on his way to the boat, and it was raingin, so he didn't want to hang around in the wet weather.
It's a bit snug on Mr C, so I added another 8 stitches and another inch in length for his father's hat.
Despite Mr C telling me he didn't need any more hats, after modelling this one he's decided he would in fact like one. I have some bright blue yarn...
irst hat - the small ne has the ame number of stitches as in the pattern, but I'm using smaller needles.
