The Amanda Hat

| 1 TrackBack

This weekend I made the second hat in my hat series, the Amanda Hat (PDF). This was another pattern that I found on Ravelry. I love using patterns from Ravelry. Many of them are really well put together. And you can see other people's comments about how they did when trying to make something.

I wound the skein Saturday evening, cast on (took two tries) and did the border rows. I picked it up Sunday morning and by lunch time I had this.

Hat #2

Before dinner the thing was done. I can't believe how quick this was to make. Maybe it's because I was just doing the Gretel Hat and the cables were so slow. But I'm tickled that I am almost 3/4 done with the hat series.

I didn't do the third row of garter stitches because I was afraid that it would make the hat too deep (from what it said in the pattern). It's actually a little short on me. But I have a bigger head. I'm hoping that it will fit its intended well. I was a little worried that this would be a hard pattern, but it was super easy. It was easy to memorize the stitches and SO FAST.

I was able to find the exact yarn that the pattern called for, Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted. I got it in a blue color. This yarn is so very lovely. It didn't split the way the silk and cottons do. And it has a puffiness that is so light and squishy. I just love it. I have half a skein left and I think I will make another hat out of it. And even though it's expensive, I think I have to consider it for a sweater one day.
