Knitted Bonnet

I finished another knitting project! I knitted up this hat/bonnet in just a couple of days. I thought this would be a really easy project, and the knitting part was. It was the rest. The hat is supposed to have a crocheted border, but I don't know how to crochet. I tried it, followed all the directions, but it didn't look anything like the picture. And this wasn't supposed to be a fancy border. It was just a single crochet. Well, I tried it twice and ripped it out twice. The tension was all wrong and it looked terrible. Then when it came to the lining my brain went on hiatus. I finally figured it out last night, but decided I was too tired to do it. So this afternoon I hand sewed in the lining. I didn't feel like fighting the sewing machine.

I like how it turned out. If I fold back the edges it looks like a pilgrim hat. I'm wearing the hat now, and it is definitely warm. I might make a scarf out of the same yarn.

I've already chosen a new project, and I have all the supplies, so I will get started on it very soon.

Nice bonnet! I came across this from google and had to search for the pattern. Is it the Kody's Old Fashion Bonnet Hat from ravelry? It looks similar, but yours shadows the forehead (as I'd like it), so I was wondering...

Anon....This is the Subway hat by Kristina McGowan in her book top down knitting.


Thanks for visiting the blog.
