It's that time of the year! Knitting season! Well kinda, its currently 62 degrees and sunny while I'm typing this up. But when I knitted up this beanie last weekend, it was super rainy and perfect weather for knitting (and Netflix!). This was a quick knit, thanks to the extra chunky weight of this yarn. I'm actually really proud of this one because I didn't use any specific pattern and kind of made it up as I went along. It's the first time I've ever did that, and I didn't have to unravel and redo anything, which is what I was bracing myself for. I tried my best to jot down what I did, so that I can make it again in different colors. Writing up patterns is a project in itself. I have a better appreciation for people who do that. It's basically another language, no? Some people complain about having to pay for patterns rather than getting them for free online. But a lot of work goes into pattern-making, yo. Respect the creator. Anyways, I'm probably going to keep making these since they're super easy and quick to knit. I love chunky yarn!
Are dpns too old school? I didn't want to buy circular needles in the size I needed.
Used the knit 2 together on the decrease rows, which will show a visible slant to the right on the decrease stitches.
Upcoming projects in mind inspired by this project: DIY stitch markers, creating my own patterns for knitted/crocheted projects.
