Squee! My second knit hat is off the needles! Alas, my holiday break is ending tomorrow, but I’m very happy to report that I had some major knitting success as I worked through my second knitting class on Craftsy.com. This class is the Circular Knit Lab: Hats Four Ways class, which covers 4 different ways of making hats: 1 circular needle, double pointed needles, 2 circular needles, and magic loop. It also includes 3 hat patterns that you make while learning the various techniques, and I finished 2 of the 3 hats. The hat pictured above is the Wheeler Hat, and I made the smallest size. I added the crochet flower myself (not part of the pattern). Below is the Sweet Pea Hat, which I made an adult size version of.
There is one more hat to do, and though my progress will be much slower on that since I’m going back to work full-time, I have decided to go ahead and get started on it soon. So far, of the techniques I’ve tried in the class, my favorite is using 1 circular and then switching to double pointed needles. We shall see what magic loop hold for me!
