This hat is so vintagey, and was a pleasure to knit. It’s knit flat and then seamed. I was too lazy to figure out how to knit it in the round, though I know others have done so on Ravelry.
Yarn: Berroco Vintage, Breezeway 5194
Needles: US 9 / 5.5 mm
It was my first time using Berroco Vintage. It’s so soft! If I were to make this hat again (and I definitely might do just that), I’d probably go down a needle size since the hat grew quite a bit with wear.
I recently finished knitting up Sassymetrical, a very cute cropped asymmetrical cardigan. I have yet to take final photos of me in it, but here is when it was in the WIP stage:
As you can see there’s no closure. Lovely shawl closures you see in a LYS are $25, but I can’t justify the expense. Okay, so I’d rather spend that money on increasing my stash anyways.
I decided to dust off my crochet hook and do a little digging on Ravelry to find a flower I could whip up. I went with this pattern here. You can find it here on Ravelry.
Now I just need to figure out how I’m going to attach it without resorting to a safety pin.
I’ll post pics of me modeling it soon!
