Spiral Rib Hat

Spiral Rib HatThe baby hat is done! I’m not sure what size baby it will fit, of course. It might work for a newborn if the ribbing is folded up around the bottom. Otherwise, it’s pretty stretchy and will probably work for next winter too.

Pattern: Frog Monkey’s Spiral Rib Hat

Yarn: Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK, color 0007, 1 ball

Needles: US6 DPNs

Comments: My spiral went the opposite way of the one shown in the pattern. I’m not sure whether that was me or the pattern – I started it several times with a different number of stitches, and I probably wasn’t looking at the pattern instructions by the time I got to the last cast-on. I noticed that the spiral was going the other way, but didn’t really think it would matter – but when I got to the decreases at the top, I had to reverse them so that they’d spiral in the same direction as the rest of the hat. (Instead of doing “PSSO, then knit x stitches”, I did “knit x stitches and then K2tog”.)

Anyway, it’s a cute little hat and went pretty quickly. And here it is with the kimono, which finally has buttons!

    Cute! I’m still pondering the spiral… Maybe the pattern was designed for south of the Equator.

    Those are so cute together! Not sure why the spirals went the other way, but it turned out neat.
