FO:- Ribs Delight

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to make three hats for a male friend. I was told that I could select any colour I wanted as well as style. This made me very happy....for about two seconds. It sounded good...great actually until I became overwhelmed with second guessing every decision I made. For some reason I couldn't get pass my own self doubt. I even caved in and asked my friend for his input....that only led to several unnecessary arguments. I finally settled on a vintage cashmere ribbed beanie pattern. It spoke to me. It had everything I wanted for the first hat:- simple design. Didn't have any cashmere or cashmere blend yarn in my stash. Instead I settled on

The yarn was easy on my hands.

The hat looked smaller than it is...I made a few mods to the pattern. Pleased with the results

One down two to go....I've already casted on hat #2

Summer officially starts tomorrow....my knitting maybe taking a backseat to the sun....have a happy weekend!!!!!


  1. Enjoy your sun, knitting will always be there for you when you are ready. :) Fantastic hat!

  2. I hear you on this. The challenge to do something. We get excited and then we start talking ourselves out of it and then its just all fuzzy.

    But I am happy you persevered. Great Job.

    Love them
