finished my first ever knitted thing! a simple hat but I really like it. I just made it up as I went along and looked up how to do things as i got to them. Mostly the decreasing and working with double pointed needles.

I made the band first and did it length-ways so I could tell when it was long enough to go around my head, then joined it and picked up the end of the rows with tiny circular needles.

  1. Wow, that’s a great hat! And without knowing it and getting scared, you used really “advanced” knitting techniques like two-directional knitting (making the band first, then picking up the stitches along its side and knitting across like that) and knitting on a round! Nothing scary about that, is there? :-D

      1. It looks just fine and that’s all that counts! :-D When you pick up stitches like that, remember to pick up 3 stitches from every 4 rows. So pick up 3, skip 1. This way you get a smooth fabric. You can pick up more or less stitches to make your second bit wider or narrower than the first. :-)
