|Materials needed for the Web hat.|
This pattern challenged me as a beginner knitter. I had to switch needles twice, count stitches in a row and also use double point needles (DPN) for the first time. I also learned that as you go on to the next row while knitting in a round you are doing what is called laddering. I was told I did a good job at it for a first timer. Yay!!
I love how it turned out, along with the great wool I used. It is soft and fits nice but not too snug. It can be worn down on my forehead or back a bit to be a small slouch hat. I absolutely love the dark brown with the flecks of color and didn't find it hard to knit.
Take a look at the photos below for my progress.
