FO Friday: Purple Worsted Hat

Happy Glorious Friday! Spring is really starting to bloom in full force here and I have a FO to share today. My Purple Worsted Hat is done, washed, blocked and photographed!

Pattern: None – a basic 80 stitch toque/beanie with 2×2 rib brim

Yarn: Shepherd’s Mill 3 ply worsted

Needles: US 8s

Mods: None really as I made this up as I went

I went with an 8 point decrease on this hat for no other reason than it divided nicely into the 80 stitch count. I even leveled up my knitting skill and I worked these hat decreases with DPNs while doing an outdoor walk. And I didn’t even fall!!

This hat probably won’t fit the hugest head but will fit an average adult or large child. The fabric did end up very robust and dense so this will be a very warm hat. This has been tucked away in the cedar chest for whenever I need a gift. I didn’t knit this one with a recipient in mind.

And even after four or five hats I am still scheming my next hat cast on, lol. Happy Knitting!!
