Yarn Over

Well it's about time, seriously. I need to keep my knitting all tightly wound under this header. And what a title!

For starters: Just a pic of a hat I sent recently to a dear friend who's lost her hair in chemo. I've knitted over 20 of these hats this season, I created my own pattern as a lot of them out there don't quite work. I knitted it on 5dp size 6mm bamboo needles and used a mix of wools to get a heathery/ocean effect. About 5 hours work, an 1cord at centre included.

2 movies worth of knitting.


  1. I see I am the first blog follower! you visited my blog via Irene. I love the hat, and knitting (like the blog title!) and wonder if you will be posting/linking to patterns? Otherwise I will be very frustrated!

  2. Hi Catherine,
    Thanks so much for visiting me!!
    All the patterns are my own, I need to transcribe them from my notebook.
    Which I will do.
