Mom’s Bonus Hat is done and dusted! I crushed this project with only inches of yarn leftover!! (Picture me doing enthusiastic fist pumps in the air.) And perhaps by coincidence or fate….today is her birthday. So happy birthday Mom!!
Pattern: My own 88 stitch basic beanie with a flat/seamed crown
Needles: US 7
Yarn: Shepherd’s Mill 2 ply DK in the Berry Gradient colorway
Mods: None really I was just creating on the fly for this project.
This hat used up almost every last bit of the 51 grams or 141 yards of the remaining gradient I had leftover from my Mom’s first Christmas gift hat. I am SUPER pleased with how my idea for the boxed crown came out. An my Kitchener skills aren’t too shabby either, lol.
I think I will plan on wrapping up the first hat I knit and give to her for her birthday with a bottle of wine. And then this recent hat will sit until Christmas time where everyone I know will be getting hand knit hats, lol.
Now I just need to scheme my next hat cast on! Happy knitting!!
