Since it is winter, another beanie was needed, so whilst recovering from my operation I thought I would make this beanie. It is Patons DK acrylic yarn in Petrol, using a 3.5mm & 4mm needles. The pattern is a DROPS pattern called Finnley’s Hat, and is very comfortable and warm.
I bought Caron X Pantone “Tree Rings” yarn a few weeks back and today decided to put it to good use and make a beanie. I bought 2 lots, so I’ll have to decide what to do with the other set of hanks.
I have, like many of you, a stash that fills a whole room. More yarn than I will ever use, but obviously need in my life, after all, a life without yarn is a life without purpose, and as my all-time favourite designer, William Morris said: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
With that, I decided to make quick beanie hat using Hayfield Spirit DK yarn. It took no time at all to make, I managed to watch two episodes of “The Leftovers” and two of “The Cabin with Bert Kreischer”. Who said that men cannot multi-task has no idea. The only thing that pissed me off was the join ladder that appeared, which never has in the past, and I have knitted many many hats on DPN’s. But it was a quick knit and I cannot expect perfection whilst watching TV too LOL
Anyway, here it is.
