I stopped my blanket and made my first hat! It’s a baby hat, and for my friends’ baby, Oliver, that is due in December (I think). I did screw it up a bit (see where I purled instead of knit?), but just went with it. It adds a little extra strip to it.
For a picture of how it’s really supposed to look, I’m posting the same hat pattern to the right, that my friend Mandi made for D when he was still an inside baby. She is a knitting expert, so this is a very good example of what the hat should look like. I don’t think mine’s too shabby for being my first one ever.
