Don’t know what to knit with that
one skein of handspun?
This is the answer:
The Happy Hat is an ultra-simple, completely customizable pattern.
It starts at the top of the head, so you can make it
as wide as you want (good for those of us with a big noggin),
as long as you need (to cover the ears),
with any border (rolling? non-rolling?)
and in whatever weight yarn you like.
The simplicity shows off handspun and handdyed yarn beautifully.
The pattern is a downloadable pdf with pictures to illustrate the steps and tips on using any weight yarn.
It also includes a link to my video showing the cast on and how to knit a small circle (of just a few stitches) on circular needles (also called magic loop).
And you won’t be knitting alone!
We’re doing a knitalong on Ravelry, where you can ask questions, get help and share your progress!
Want to use the handspun you already have?
Just make sure you have 80-90 yards of a bulky yarn
(or 100-120 of a worsted weight and over 150 yards of dk weight)
and the appropriate size needles in 16in circulars.
If you have 50 grams (or around 4 oz) of yarn, you’ll have plenty unless you want to make a hat to fit Sasquatch.
