Your wish is my command!


Ok Aidan...you wanted a hat and Nana delivered! It's not a fancy hat, but hey...he's a boy! I made him a skull cap. Not really a pattern either. I just cast on 55 stitches, knit 3, purl 2 for 1 1/2 inches, then increased by knitting front to back in every 11th stitch for a total of 60 stitches. I just kept knitting for 5 inches, then started my decrease. Knit 2, knit 2 together. Next row Knit 1, knit 2 together. Then knit 2 together until I had one stitch left, and I wove in my end. Aidan kept me on task by saying,"Nana...where's my hat!" It took me 2 days of knitting off and on to complete. I could have finished it in one day, but I had to work!
