Turn A Square



Or Two!


Okay Maybe Three!


Aren't they all so pretty?


For those of you who may have already knitted this wonderful little hat by Brooklyn Tweed you know he designed it to basically use up leftover yarn. I knitted all three hats from 1 skein of Noro Silk Garden and 1 skein of Cascasde 220 Superwash. I was honestly expecting to only get 2 hats but decided to try and sqeak out a third, because really, what would I have done with the bit that was left. As you can see in the third hat I did run out of the Noro yarn right at the end. I only needed enough for 4 more rows but it wasn't to be. I finished the last few rows in black. Does it look bad? All in all, I love how the coloring worked out in all the hats.

  1. I like like like the black at the end. It seems like it lets the colors in the rest of it pop a little more They are some most excellent hats.

  2. You certainly have been productive! The black just looks like a design element and balances out the ribbing. They are lovely!

  3. Fast hats! I wouldn't have noticed the extra black if you didn't point it out so I think it's just fine. :-)

  4. THREE hats?! Holy moley, you are fast when you get going. I think they all look perfect with the extra black too.

  5. Cute!! I'm going to have to make one of these...

  6. Deb, you are very inspirational at the speed in which you knit. The hats are gorgeous!!! They look like christmas presents for triplets. hehe!!

  7. Wow, you cranked those hats out like a short order cook cranks out pancakes. Love them. And the black top on hat #3 looks excellent. I have some leftover cascade and mostly kureyon but I could make it work with kureyon.

  8. They're soooo fabulous! You should gift one to Jeremy. I think he'd like one.
