Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Christmas Gifts: Pilot Cap {Yarn Along}

Christmas Gifts: Pilot Cap {Yarn Along}


Christmas knitting is well underway. I knit a Pilot cap for my sister's baby. Overall the directions were easy, but I'm more of a visual learner, so I was confused by the directions for the applied i-cord {of course the headache didn't help}. I looked up YouTube directions on knitting applied i-cord edging; then when I looked back at the written directions, I was stunned that it looked like Greek the previous day because I thought, "Oh, I should have understood this."


I started knitting the My striped & slouchy hat for my mum for Christmas. I've been weaving in the ends as this is being knit, since weaving in ends is my least favorite thing to do in knitting.

What are you knitting or reading?

  1. I admire the ability to make pretty things by knotting yarn with one or two sticks. :-) I grew up watching my grandmother make beautiful clothes for my Barbie dolls and afghans for the family... but I never could make them myself.

    The hat is so awesome!

  2. I wish I could knit! I'm pretty handy with a crochet hook, but knitting just looks so much harder. Props to you! Great hat!

  3. Ohh I knit but just simple scarves. I never knew how to do the circle and things. I can crochet but I don't know how to do rounds for that either. I just do simple blankets. I can follow directions though, especially if they have pictures. I love these projects. Thanks for sharing

  9. I've done that before too .. gone on youtube to see how to do something in the knitting world and wondered why I was confused in the first place. My mantra: "trust the pattern" ..it's only when I don't trust it that things go wonky!
