Knitting, Pattern Review

Knitting: A Hat for me

Yet another late knitting post!  Last winter I realized that I had made the kids and Albert several hats each, but I didn’t have one for myself!  Obviously that situation needed to be remedied.

I like my hats slouchy, and I also liked the idea of a beret-style hat, so set to searching on Ravelry.  I love Ravelry for many reasons, not the least of which is because I can almost always find a free pattern for whatever I want to make.

I already had in mind a pattern that I wanted to make with the leftovers from my Stitch Block Cowl … whenever I finished it.  For this hat, though, my requirements were pretty simple.  I wanted some lacework, a slouchy style, and I wanted to use this gray aran-weight yarn from my stash.

I ultimately chose the Bellezza pattern, which checked all my boxes and is a free download on Ravelry.

The lace pattern was easy to memorize and the hat went together nicely.  It got a little tedious knitting those rows and rows of repetitive lace, always having to keep track of what row I was on, but overall it could have been much worse.  And I got a hat that looks nice and keep my ears warm — can’t complain about that!
