Sarah Hat

I've been able to get a fair amount of crafting done while we watch the Olympics in the evenings, and in the last few days that has been my Sarah hat.  I was excited and a little nervous about this project as it was my very first attempt at making up my own knitting pattern.  But yesterday morning I finished it, and it actually turned out rather well!

Having worked out my version and then studied Sarah's again, I'm going to experiment with changing a few things that will make it closer to the original.   But I never had to rip out more than 3 rows at a time as I worked, so I'm excited that my first attempt went so well!

I was worried about continuing the seed stitch pattern when I got to the crown shaping, but I reread the instructions for the All-Day Beret pattern and once I got going it really wasn't rocket science.  It doesn't slouch as much as I was expecting it to, though, and I'm not sure how I feel about that...

After I work out a couple of the flaws I'm planning to post the instructions.  Just in case anyone else wants to make their own Sarah Hat.  :o)


  1. Oh, it turned out so cute! Great job designing the pattern as well! I haven't designed my own hat pattern yet but I have been wanting to try! I have been knitting a lot in the evenings during the Olympics as well! It's a great way to make some progress on projects! I'm working on a cardigan right now. :)

  2. Great job Kelsie!!
    I love the color.
    You'll have to show it to me on Tuesday!


Please comment - it will make my day! :)
