FO – Sockhead

I have one more hat in my collection now.
Its a .
It’s too cute.

The warns us that there is a lot of sockinette (a lot), but I didn’t mind that as much as the rib. I don’t know if there’s a technique that I need to learn, but rib takes me ages. Maybe if I switch to continental it would be easier? I don’t know. I should do some research.
But everytime I do research on knitting I end up getting distracted by pretty colours, or pretty patterns. And end up forgetting what I was researching in the first place.

Anyway, I love this hat, and can see many more in my future. Even just because it was the perfect project to take on the road.
This hat has seen a few awesome bands () and was .
Now for the weather to get a little colder. It’s going to be perfect to put my hair up into, it has plenty of room in the back.

Slouch away!

    I love the hat! Is it the switching from knit to purl in the same row that gives you trouble with ribbing? I made a scarf a few weeks ago using seed stitch, so I got pretty good at it by the end – I had to change the way I held the yarn so it threaded into my stitches differently. I don’t really think I could describe my method to you (it’s not that great anyway!), but if you’re having trouble, you could make something in seed stitch and just play around with how you hold the yarn.
