Hats Hats and More Hats
First up another pair of Shortie Socks
Yarn: Cascade 220 - left over from Christmas Presents
Pattern: 40 stitches size 4 dp's
The following hats are made with the red yarns purchased from elann.com
Pattern: Twist Hat
Yarn: Laines Du Nord, Softlight, 2 skeins
Color: Bright Red
Needles: Size 8 Circular & dp's
This is one thick and warm hat. The pattern suggest a heavy worsted yarn with size 10.5 needles. The yarn I used is a bulky weight, I used smaller needles to obtain tension. The yarn was easy to work with. No splitting. The pattern, actually 2 different panels, did require me to pay attention, although not a hard pattern
Color: Sangria
Needles: Size 6 Circular & dp's
This hat was a fun easy knit. The rib pattern on the cuff is a 4 row pattern that is easily remembered. The yarn is 80% wool and 20% alpaca and feels very warm and is a joy to work with. The cuff provides extra warmth for the ears.
Pattern: Thorpe
Color: Red Maple 2 Skeins
Needles: Size 8 Circular & dp's
Fun, easy,and quick
Pattern: Braided Hat Scroll down past ads
Color: Claret
Needles: Size 6 Circular & dp's
I used 110 stitches. The result is a very thick hat. The hat looks small but stretches to a women's medium.

I still have yarn left and will be making 2 more hats and a scarf to finish my study in REDS.
