Craftsy.com had one of their big sale last week and I ordered a few beanie kits. I’ve never knitted hats, or knitted in the round really, so I thought I’d take advantage of a sale and give it a shot! The first kit I ordered was the Cloudborn Basic Hat kit in red.
As the product name suggested, it’s a pretty basic slouchy hat. A few rows of ribbing, a bunch of knits and then reducing it until it’s time to close up the top.
It was really hot this weekend in Seattle, so I pretty much locked myself up in my air conditioned room and knocked this hat out pretty quickly while listening to some documentaries.
I’m pretty happy with it being my first hat. I sat down last night and started the next hat, which uses a chunky yarn, so I’m almost done with that as well. Once I get a few of these under my belt I’ll probably break out the fingering yarn and knit some finer stitched hats. I have lots of fingering weight yarn from all my sock stuff so I should probably figure out how to use some of that up!
