good for you Carla, and there are no hard and fast rules around hats so whatever you have done is fine, other patterns I have done have gone right down to one stitch and yes, you are wise to leave some thread to stitch it up! We look forward to seeing photos :lol:

I just finished knitting up this hat (now that i've learnt how to purl), it looks really good, thanks for the instructions Callum's Godmother, :D I would post a pic except we don't have a digital camera. Also on dial up so when I tried loading pics onto photobucket it took forever. :(

My next project is some wee longies, I've got a really good knitting book with basic patterns in it so i'll give them another shot (different pattern from the last pair I made. They turned out ok but look a bit like clown pants :lol: ). I bought some really cute wool yesterday - well actually it's acrilic :oops: - so they should look nice. :D

It may have taken me three days but here's the results of my first ever knitting project:

The video's on knittinghelp.com were excellent :D :D I'm quite proud of it, no stuff up's really just one small hole that I was able to fix up.

Thanks - yep, it was my first (apart from some knitting in primary school)

I want to do some booties next.

I'm up to row 11 of this pattern

Don't know how I'll go though, so far so good

I'm trying this, did the first row and my hand hurts :lol: so figured I'd ask "how do I purl???" and leave it till tomorrow. I looked up that video on one of the links from the beginners guide, but I think the pictures are easier to follow.

I've just completed this hat as a reintroduction to knitting (last knitted at intermediate and I think it was only scarves!) so I'm hardly an expert, but hopefully this helps you.

With the yarn to the front of the work, insert the RH needle from the right to the left into the front of the first stitch on the LH needle. Then take the wool around the point of the RH needle and draw the RH needle and yarn through the stitch, which will form a new stitch on the RH needle. The slip the original stitch off the LH needle and repeat with the next stitch.

My hand was hurting too - I think I need to hold the wool differently so I don't get cramp!

Oooh thanks, I'll give that a go.

I think the hand hurting will go away when I get used to it :D

So lets start!!


Love this hat - i've looked through the thread but can't seem to find, anyone know how you'd alter this for a 1 + year old?
