Tah dah!! I have a finished super speedy bulky knit hat. I completed my Big Comfy Chunky Hat in own hand dyed Feast yarn by Nomad Yarns.
Pattern: Big Comfy Chunky Hat by Erica Kempf Broughton
Yarn: Feast by Nomad Yarn in the color Spice Box
Needles: US 11s
Mods: I added some extra rows to the crown decreases to use up the whole skein.
This hat turns out to be reversible because it is essentially all ribbed stitch. Which I think is kind of a sweet design feature. I very carefully wove in the ends so I could fully turn this both ways.
This hat really worked up quickly as promised. I think I finished in two sittings over two days. So maybe roughly 3 hours? I had some tension issues with the crown as I chose to magic loop it instead of getting off my rear to find double pointed needles. But in the finished hat it does not show.
It is a little small for my noggin (which is larger than most) but Jellybean has proclaimed it to be perfect for his head. So this will be one of the hats for our winter hat box by the front door. I need to sew a name tag into it before it leaves the house…you just in case the six year old set it down somewhere, lol.
Happy Knitting and Happy Halloween Eve!!
Amazing knitting! I tried knitting years ago and I was useless at it, lol. So, I envy your work.
