Your hats are so beautiful and you turn them out so quickly! Do you use a pattern?

Thank you for the compliment. No I don't use a pattern, I just wing it. I use size 7 double point bamboo needles. I use to use circulars but for some reason the double points work better for me. Most of the time I CO around 80-84 stitches. I tend to knit a little tight with some yarns so I allow the extra stitches to help with that. When it comes to the pattern I just choose the colors and when I feel the need to change I do. Lately I have been thinking about adding some color patterns to my web site for hats. Some simple ones that the knitter can then use to launch other patterns and get creative themselves with.

Anyway, Thank you again for the compliment and I hope you many hours of great knitting.
