Strib Hat for Chris
So my husband, Chris, sees me knitting and crocheting in the evenings while watching TV together and I’m usually making something for myself or for someone else… so I asked him last week– would you like me to make you something? Without hesitating he says, yes. I’d like a hat…. so I ask him to pick a color, showed him a few ideas and then set to work on the Strib Hat, by Kelly Williams on Ravelry.
I used my size 8 US / 5mm double pointed bamboo needles (LOVE THEM), and purchased a skein of Lionbrand “Heartland” worsted weight yarn in “Yosemite”. Then went to my stash to find a brown and another orange (with Chris’ approval) and set to work.
I’m very pleased with the result, and had fun knitting this up in just a couple of evenings. The only thing I wish I had done different was to cast on more tightly. Well, since I’ve only used about half of the skein I purchase I think I just may make another one for me!
