well, not really. There’s only two new hats, not three.
I’ve been using up all the Cascade 220 bits and partial balls I have accumulated.
This, of course, is another That Chocolate’s Gone Straight to Your Ribs hat. Some of the ones I’ve made, I’ve used a 90 st cast on to make it smaller; these two are 100 st and I worked the ‘body’ of the hat to 6.5″ before doing the crown decreases. I like that the ribbing is staggered (4 x 2 x 2 x 2). Nice look. Oh, here’s your tip for the day: when ribbing in different colours, if you knit the first round of the new colour (i.e. don’t rib), you won’t get those ugly little colour blips on your purl stitches on that first row.
I still have some yarn left, so I’ve cast on for some mittens.
