Yes, you should be absolutely fine in terms of yardage! From my own observations, Super Saver skeins have enough to make 2-3 hats.
Well, thank you, kind person! I hope your dad liked his gift!
I’m so happy to hear that you liked it!
For the garter stitch beanie, you should be fine if you cast on 60 stitches instead of 72. The hat will be a little bit looser, but I don’t think that should change the appearance/fit too much.
It really depends on what I have going on in my life. I knitted like a crazy person over winter break, but now that the spring semester has started for me, it takes a little longer to crank stuff out. It also depends really heavily on how interesting the current televison show/movie I’m watching is. If it’s really good, I can watch and knit for ages!
Normally, it takes me about 3-5 hours to make a worsted-weight hat. I find that more complex patterns usually get done faster because they’re more interesting and I want to work on them!
They are! You can find the pattern here.
My inspiration usually comes from items I see around. I’m a stickler for hand-knit items, and I always get on my friends’ cases if they buy an item I could easily make for them (especially if it was really expensive!). I’m always up for the challenge of recreating something I see in a store, on television, or online.
When I develop patterns, I write down everything — I’ve gotten myself into situations where I neglected to do that and ended up having to guess measurements, stitch numbers, and so on, which makes an unreliable pattern. Even if I end up scrapping certain things, I always write down what I had before, just in case I choose to go back to it.
No worries about your English! It sounds great to me. Thank you for your kind words!
Please, don’t be so hard on yourself! Everyone learns at their own pace; I’m glad to hear that you’re learning more! I’m so happy to know that I helped you out.
It’s my pleasure! Thank you!
I totally understand where you’re coming from. Knitting hats with magic loop is far from magic!
Thanks so much!
