A Hat For Samuel

knit hat


I cast on and off this hat in one day! The yarn is loops and threads and it was on sale for $1.99 at Michael’s, so I stocked up.
It’s perfect for the kids…on the chunky side and knits up pretty quick.

As you can see, the hat is a little big. I cast on 60 stitches and think maybe I’ll take it down to 40-50 for his next one. I tried it on Ava and it was big on her, even with all of her hair out. I need to cast on more for Kiah’s because her locs are so thick the hat barely comes down on her head! Also need to work on my closure for the top. It was knit on straight needles…..I’m not showing you a picture of that! It was fun to knit and I’ll have fun experimenting with the other hats I make for them in the next couple of weeks.
