FO: Grand Canyon Beanie

November 4, 2008 at 3:58 pm 3 comments


I finished something! A lovely hat for my sister for Christmas. (MOM, IF YOU READ THIS, DO NOT SHOW IT TO RACHEL.)


Project: Grand Canyon Beanie (link to my Ravelry page)
Pattern: Spring Beret, by Natalie Larson (Ravelry link!)
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft
Mods: Well, I did NOT do everything according to the pattern. I tend to do that. Because of this tendency, this beret turned into a beanie. Still super awesome and super cute, but definitely not a beret. I used a lighter weight yarn, and smaller needles. I didn’t change needle sizes for the lace portion, like the pattern indicated. I also fudged the cast on number and increases to make it fit the gauge that I got.



I loved this pattern. I will definitely be making one for me in a more slouchy style. The lace pattern is great, and it was a really simple knit. (When I was paying attention. There is one repeat of the pattern that is just FUNKY, because I was distracted.)

Titled “Grand Canyon Beanie” because I finished it on our Epic Roadtrip Through Most Of Majestic Arizona. I decided it would be REALLY COOL to finish it and take pictures of it at the Grand Canyon. And I succeeded!

    your version of this hat turned out great!
    I am about to start this project myself and I am fascinated by all the different versions.
    BTW, how will you ever keep such a cute hat a secret from your sister!?

      My dear sister chooses to neglect my knitting blog, HAHA. The only one who ever checks is my mom, really.

      Don’t forget to post pictures of your hat!
