I made a hat!
Pattern: Fireside Chevron Hat Knitting Pattern
Needles: US 11 - 8.0 mm
Yarn: ~132 grams Lion Brand Hometown USA, 102 Honolulu Pink (super bulky)
Getting this hat started was surprisingly difficult! I knew I wanted to knit a hat in the round with this yarn, but:
- none of my circular needles were the right size
- all of my dpns were too small
- my interchangeable needles were the right size, but the cables were too stiff for magic loop
- my usual needle store was out of stock
Then I finally remembered that it’s possible to knit in the round using 2 circular needles! So I used this tutorial and my 2 longest interchangeable cables.
I prefer magic loop, but it worked! Even though having more cables flopping around was very tempting for my cat:
