Finished Objects| The knitted slouchy cat beanie


|Most recent Finished Object

•Basic Construction•

I’ve recently finished my oldest daughters slouchy cat hat. Which is just your normal, basic bottom-up hat. If you’ve made a lot of hats like me.-I’ve knit about 4 hats so far—By now I have it pretty well memorized.


•Picking an Image & Yarn•

So since I had to knit her a hat before the next winter. I started to search around for turtle images-since she loves turtles- did a few swatches- Hated it-Did more searches- found a cat image, tried it-loved it-and used it. I was very happy with it. Even though-I’m still very new to color knitting. I didn’t want to jump way to it at that moment-So I took the easy route by using a variegated yarn. I really wanted to at least add an image to this very plain rusty brown color hat. The yarn is a mystery yarn I got from an online knitting friend.

•Halfway there!•

I was extremely proud of how the hat looked at this point. Already knitted all the cats onto it. I just HAD to snap a quick in-between shot of it to share. Look how the rusty red shows. Beautiful rusty brown. I just wish I knew the name of the yarns. -Sad face-
