My One-Skein Knitted Hat


After learning to knit scarves I moved to the next challenge knitting a hat, and boy was I gong ho to do that.  My first attempt went pretty good, but I wanted to make it better, so I started over. and over again, finally I came to my senses, best to build technique by knitting plenty of hats than getting obsessed with my first, at that point I was able to complete the hat.

As I knit I am learning and understanding more like there is wrong and right side to some stitch such as the stockinette, this stitch is made up of one side that is knit and the other side that is purl.  This hat was done using the stockinette stitch but I liked the purl side better which is considered wrong side, also the purl side compliments my garter stitch scarf.

I used the free One-Skein hat pattern from suite 101 site, it very easy to follow, plus I already had the yarn and correct size needle. I was also motivated to have a hat with a knitted or crochet flower attached.
