Here are two of my knitting students from Now and Then in Takoma park. They’re posing with one of our class projects–a hat I designed using Southwest Trading Company’s Karaoke.
It’s a skullcap style hat with a little eyelet row that you can leave as-is or run a ribbon through as an extra decorative detail. The hat is designed to teach increasing, decreasing and ribbing. My students also learned mattress stitch and a cable cast on. They did a great job.
