This makes a cute hat and is a great way to use up smaller scraps with no ends to work in. Part of my 2015 Stash Bust Challenge!

1/18/2015 finished! Definitely a small child size-I learned a lot with this hat. The pattern was fine, I just made a few errors along the way. Even though I added 10 stitches to the beginning chain, it still wasn’t long enough for a large child. I ended the hat at about 16.5” in width. I added 4 rnds of sc for a 1” brim bringing the total length to 7”. It should fit the smallest patients.

1/10/2014-still working, about 12” so far. I’m learning sl st along the way-I’ve learned I need to count my stitches or use a marker as I keep missing the last one and I learned my arm doesn’t do well with sl st. I might need to investigate a new way to hold the hook. For now, I have to limit my time so I don’t overwork my arm.

12/11/2014
This is my first time making anything with sl st so I thought I’d try the multi-knot hat as there isn’t any shaping to worry about. So far, so good.

Using mix of 50% cotton 50% acrylic from stash. Had to add 10 stitches to beg. chain to get correct length for a child. I’m really liking the texture.
