Finally, some finishes! It's been awhile since I posted on a FO Friday! Above you'll find my finished sidewinder hat for my husband. This was a fast, fun knit and has sat for over a week waiting for me to seam the very top of the hat and weave in ends. It was fun to knit something flat for once--this pattern uses short rows to create the "decreases" at the crown. This is a perfect "manly" hat pattern--I will definitely make this one again! 

Needles: size 7 Addi Turbo's
Yarn: Berocco Ultra Alpaca and Knit Picks Bare DK (dyed jet black by moi). Used about 1/2 a skein each!

But wait--there's more! I finished two needlepoint ornaments in the past couple of weeks as well. Now I need to put up the tree ...


  1. Love the hat. I think this may become a last minute present for my husband. And your ornaments are soooooo cute!

  2. That hat looks really impressive. And I love your ornaments too. I've been cross-stitching Christmas cards for family members and having great fun with it.
