The hat knitting goes on....

and recently I´ve knitted a bit fair isle knitting. And this is really funny but very hard for me. I´m really not good in knitting with more than one strands of yarn and my yarns always get tangeled. But I like the look of that colourful knitted projects and from time to time I give it a try.

Teresa wanted me to knit her this hat. It was easy to make and a fast knit. I like the result and so does she - and thats the most important. The pattern is a free pattern and in case you don´t know the site from Anna and Heidi Pickles jet you really should check it out. They have some really nice yarn and pattern.

Pattern: From Norway with Love - hat by Anna and Heidi Pickles free pattern
Yarn: Rowan Felted tweed dk, Rowanspun dk, Drops Karisma, 100purewool worsted singles
Needles: 3.75mm for the brim and 4.5mm for the rest

This one was a little more complicated. The knitting was not really hard, but there were 7 colours and a lot of tangeld yarns for me and TONS of loose ends to sew in (because of tangeld yarns).

 Than it turned out too large and I shrank it in the dryer and I was soooo lucky that it worked out!  I love how the hat turned out and plan to use it a lot this winter. It is very soft and light and warm. And the little flowers are really cute.

The pattern was gifted to me by a dear friend from ravelry who knitted a very pretty version of this hat too. Thank you Anne.

Yarn: several different light fingering and fingering weight wools
Needles: 3mm

It was really nice and interesting knitting these both hats but for now I´m back to "normal" and knitting only with one colour at a time.
For this little trips out of my usual confort zone hats are perfect projects as they are easy to knit and not too large. One day I´d like to knit fair isle mittens. But not now :)
