Knitting ribbed hats is one of my favorite “no brainer” knitting projects. I really don’t have to think about what I’m doing, after all the rib stitch is just a combination of knits and purls, until you reach the desired knitted hat length. I have fun playing with a variety of ribbed stitch length, but my standard is usually k2, p2….
This hat is a fun project, love the orange color. It makes me think of autumn! Cool nights, soups and chunky chowders to warm the tummy as we sit near a warm fire.
Of course, I’m using my Hiya Hiya Steel Sharp circular needles. Once I went Hiya Hiya… I never looked back. 🙂 A few days ago, I ordered two more 16″ HiyaHiya Interchangeable Cable (small.) It seems, I’m always running out of 16″ cables so I felt it was high time I added more to my collection. The 16″ cables are great for small projects. For some reason, during the cooler months, I find myself knitting a lot more items using my 16″ interchangeable cables.
It’s been a very busy week but I’m hoping that I can finish knitting this hat sometime this weekend. Hopefully, I’ll be able to squeeze in some time while my daughter is drawing, writing or reading.
