Over the last 2 weeks, I've made 3 more caps for our AT&T Telecomm Pioneers project for a total of 21 so far this year.
This first hat was knit from the top down, starting with I-cord and increasing to the full diameter. The variegated yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in the color Watercolor. My goal was to finish the skein of Watercolor, but I still have a small ball left. The brim is knit 2, purl 2 ribbing in Dark Sage Red Heart Super Saver.
This hat is crocheted in Griddle Stitch (alternating single and double crochet). I love the texture. The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in Dark Sage.
Poppy is designed as a baby/toddler hat. I used Red Heart Super Saver in medium purple and US size 8 needles (5.0 mm) to create a larger hat. I made a couple of minor modifications including knitting the band in the round, omitting the tab.
The hat was quick to knit and I plan to give it another try since the hat is a bit smaller than I'd like. It's a very stretchy design and stretched to fit on my model, though the hat size is more appropriate for a smaller head.
