Fun with Intarsia: Knitted hat – kittens in love

Ok so I got a bit sidetracked with the mittens, but can you blame me? My daughter loves cats, and this hat was just begging to be made.

I didn’t use a pattern for the hat. The main pattern is a combination of seed stitch and rib stitch. And stockinette stitch was the perfect background to place the two kitties.

My daughter is thrilled with the hat so I’ll complete it tomorrow. I’m thinking I might add a few additional designs to this hat. I have a several ideas, I just need to put them on graph paper, and let my daughter choose the one she likes best or even better, let her sketch something to include with the kitties. I have about three more inches to add the design before I start decreasing, so there’s plenty of room for something small.  Once the hat is complete, I’ll start knitting her mittens. Do I really need to add that I knit these with my Hiya Hiya Sharps Steel set? I used size 3 and 4. I really love these needles!

I definitely need to chose better lighting when this hat is completed. The main hat color is actually pink and the design is grey.

Oh by the way, the graph can be found on Ravelry, and is appropriately called, kitty love. While I’ve made plenty of my own graphs for this type of work, I didn’t feel the need to do so here…

Q – So totally adorable! Will you please adopt me? I’m housebroken, play well with others, clean up after myself, etc. I’ll take a hat just like the one above. LOL! And I love Macaroni and Cheese.
