My first knit pattern. I'm really excited that I am finally able to share with you. I love that in broadening my horizons and learning something new I can then go share it with others. Five years ago when I started this blog if someone told me I would be adding knit patterns to it also, I would have laughed at them.
Since moving to Canada, I just fell in love with the culture surrounding knitting and crafting. There is also the thrill of learning and accomplishing something new. It has been so Rewarding learning more about all the different fiber arts.
Enough about me I want to tell you about the pattern.
Swift Swirl Hat: A Knit Pattern
Needles: 6,0 mm/US 10 circular needles and a set of double point needles US 10 to finish it off.
Yarn: I used Lion Brand Wool Ease: mushroom 403 for the adult hat, and I used an unlabeled wool for the smaller hat (sorry) I would recommend any worsted wool size 4.
Notions: tapestry needle
Gauge: 17 k = 4 inches, 20 rows = 4 inches
Once pattern is established the pattern will move to the right by one stitch after every row.
Right Twist: knit 2 together keeping both stitches on the left needle, knit into the first stitch, then pull both stitches onto the right needle, stitch complete.
Sk2p: slip stitch to the right needle, knit 2 stitches together, pass over slipped st over the k2tog stitches.
