Let’s do a Hat KAL during the Olympic Games!! The rules for the Ravellenic Games are to start and finish a project during the Olympics. So starting Feb. 4th and finishing Feb 20th. I will have 3 hat kits for sale.
- Cabla Hat using our worsted weight LiViLy
- Correlation Hat using our Synergy yarn (sport or worsted)
- Rhinebeck Hat (wooly wormheads design) made with our worsted weight LiVily or Synergy.
I’ll post a link to the sales page when they are up for sale.
In the meantime, reply here to tell me if you are IN!!
You can also come by Saturday (1/15) to pick out a kit for yourself.
You know that feeling when you finish a pattern and the garment just doesn’t fit? I do. I’ve had it happen a number of times. This hat has been on my to-re-do pile for a while. It is just too small.
Thankfully, I have some of this same yarn and colorway that was returned from a sample knitter. So I decided to pick up the edge and just knit a ribbing on the hat. For some reason, this pattern doesn’t have a ribbing on it so it made sense for me to add one to make this a better size for me.
I made sure that as I picked up the stitches the “seam” that happens went to the inside of the hat. There will still be a slightly visible line, but I’m OK with that.
I’m thinking that I may make a doubled rib edge on this. That is when you make the ribbing twice as wide as you want. Then you fold it and do a 3 needle bind off to “sew” the end of the ribbing onto the inside of the hat.
Would you ever try this? Have you ever done something similar? Or do you rip it all out and start all over again?
