More Hat Decreases

My Purple Worsted Hat is growing nicely. I popped my hat onto my mannequin head to see where I was to determine if crown decreases were necessary.

This yarn is custom milled here in Kansas at the Shepherds Mill in Phillipsburg KS. It’s a nice round three ply. I think this would be what knitting with handspun would be like? I noticed some thick and thin changes in the plies for this yarn as I work. I’m not knocking it but its certainly different than working with a mainstream commercial yarn.

After consulting the mannequin head and getting the hubby’s opinion, I think I am ready to start the decreases. And maybe I can have a FO this week?

Happy Knitting!!
