More Hats

After the marathon knitting just to get Jo a hat that fit right with her ponytail Scout thought she needed at hat. What do you want? She replied purple and white. I had some purple in the stash, Loops and Threads Impecable #1310, amethyst. I also some Lion Brand White multi #301. It has a small metallic thread through it. I do not know if it is stress or what but when I finished the hat it was a little too short. I have never in all my hat making had this happen so often. I looks ok but seemed to ride up.

So I took some white and picked up all the stitches and knitted one more row. It turned out ok but I was not happy with the fact it seemed a little tight.

This fit a little better length-wise and is ok but I was still not happy. This was also a K2,P2 pattern for the whole hat. I decided to try adding four more stitches to give it a little more stretch and did a 1x1 rib pattern for the whole hat. I used some Bernat Pink Camo from the stash (it is now discontinued) and some Lion Brand Wool-ease White Frost. The white is a little fuzzy and looks cool on hats. I used the white for a small trim and the rest of the hat in the pink camo.

Not only did it fit good but she can pull it on and off all by herself.
