OP’s Hat

Pattern: Toni Ribbed Hat
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted
Needles: US 7


One would think that as soon as a knitter finds out she (or he) is expecting, she would start knitting hats for the little bundle of poop and snot. Alas, no. I wasn’t sure what OP’s head size would be when born so I figured I’d wait and see. Then I was too busy trying to figure out this new life, that OP’s first winter came and went with no hat made from mommy.


Not this winter. This winter, I made her a lovely hat that she tolerates. OP has never liked hats and is always taking them off. This one she puts up with and eventually takes off, but at least she waits until we are in the car seat before removing her hat. I’ll take that as a win.


It’s a good pattern, but I have to try it again. I liked how the designer did the decreases, which is different from the way I normally decrease, but I got it in my head that there was a typo. Instead of checking online or just trying it out and having trust in the designer, I did it my way. I need to see how it would work following her design. Of course, the design is for a flat hat, and I did mine is in the round so maybe I was right. I liked the pattern, though so I would totally enjoy a redo.

As for the yarn,  I haven’t gone wrong yet with any Knit Picks yarn, this style included. I love it. Highly recommend it.
