This was my first foray into knitting. Deanne kept telling me that it was easy. I figured it couldn’t be much harder than crocheting the Pokeball (how naive), so I gave it a try. Well, it was certainly an adventurous learning experience. What made this hat challenging, was that I had to knit a hat size that was smaller than what the pattern called for. Lots of time was spent on figuring out number of stitches, when to change colour, etc. This hat ended up being a little too small for Nicholas (just covering the top of his ears).
When I was half way through the hat, Deanne tells me how impressed she is that I knitting at an intermediate level! Oh Deanne…thank you for your faith in me and for encouraging me along.
Deanne found this Poke hat pattern on the Ravelry website (Sasha Knits)
