Knitting a hat.

I finished knitting the hat from the pattern which I downloaded from Ravelry site, however it didn’t turn out as I had expected it to. The pattern is called The Natural.

Despite the fact that I actually made it longer than recommended, I still found the finished article to be much smaller than I had expected.

It was perfect for a 5 year old but no good for my husband as when it was stretched to fit him it wasn’t thick enough to keep his head warm.

So that was a bit of a disappointment and I’ve started another one just using one of my old tried and tested patterns.
