Finished Knit: Christopher’s Winter Hat

January 11, 2008

Christopher Knit hat
Needles: size 9 circ
Yarn: Blue and Heathered Blue leftovers of Encore yarn
Size: 26″ head. Yikes

I whipped up Christopher’s christmas gift winter hat in 2 days, finishing it late last Saturday night, while I was at my parents’ house for a late-Christmas family get-together. Christopher is really tall. Naturally he has an enormous head. I cast on 92 stitches with scraps of 2 leftover skeins of Plymouth Encore Worsted, in navy blue and a heathered blue/green. Ribbed edge, and garter stitch ear flaps finished it off. Christopher is ready to battle those cold temperatures in upstate NY now. Mom and I think his hat looks much like a warrior helmet. If you know Christopher, you know that this is quite fitting.
