Over the last several weeks I have been doing a lot of charity knitting. Knitting up the stash! These are all acrylic yarn.
This is a free pattern on Ravelry called Classic World War II Watch Cap. It has various sizes and stitch patterns. I started out trying to find a size to fit my head. Since I had a LOT of yarn I started with the largest which is like an XL. The stitch pattern is a very wide rib. Believe me when I say that this hat is huge.
The next one I knit was the adult large The stitch pattern is a pennant design with the pennants pointing to the left. There was one with the pennants pointing to the right. I was starting to feel a bit like Goldilocks, this hat was too big also.
The next hat was an adult medium with a zigzag stitch pattern done in columns. Eureka! I now know how many stitches to cast on for a perfect fit for my head! Yes, this one fit.
One more size is the adult small/child large. I like the stitch pattern in this one: a spiral inside columns.
I had just a tad bit of yarn left, so I made some bi-color mittens to use up the light blue. Next up, since I got into it, is using up that other blue.
What's on your needles?
