Project: Lilly's Hat from Stitchmarker
Yarn: Hat - Nashua Chunky Wool/Alpaca in Espresso
Rose - Shibuiknits in Blossom
Needles: Hat - 6 DPN Rose - 2 DPN
This projects calls for size 10 needles, but I started on 8's and it just looked so big. I ripped out and started over on the 6's. It still looked really big, so I switched to the DPNs instead of the circs and it made all the difference. It's a super easy project as I did the hat, first rose and leaf in a day of good relaxing!
This hat is for a sweet little baby girl who arrived a few weeks early and caught my knitting a bit off guard! Now it's time to hunker down and get to her sweater!
